I had great excuses when not prepared for tests.
"No Test Today" by Marykelly
I left my brain at home today.
I cannot take this test! NO WAY!
Take this test? I can't I'm sure.
My brain is on my bedroom floor.
It may be underneath a book,

I know it isn't with me now!
Take this test? NO WAY! NO HOW!

I'll answer questions, do my best.
My brain will tell me what to write,
I'll work and work with all my might.
My brain is still at home today.
I cannot take this test! NO WAY!
