Colour of My Dreams 
I'm a really rotten reader 
the worst in all the class, 
the sort of rotten reader 
that makes you want to laugh. 
I'm last in all the readin' tests, 
my score's not on the page 
and when I read to teacher 
she gets in such a rage. 
She says I cannot form my words 
she says I can't build up 
and that I don't know phonics 
and don't know a c-a-t from k-u-p. 
They say that I'm dyslexic 
(that's a word they've just found out) 
... but when I get some plasticine 
I know what that's about.........
