Mum announced the awful news
"Today we're buying proper shoes"
I try three pairs on in the shop
My feet are yelling at me "Stop!"
Both the left one and the right
Are definitely much too tight
Shop assistant number one says "Perfect fit"
Mum says "Once you've worn them they will stretch a bit"
Shop assistant number two says "Wow! They're smart"
I say "Ouch! Uncomfortable! They really hurt!"
Yes, today we're buying proper shoes
My toes and tootsie's have the blues
Mum says "They're for best and school"
I'm disagreeing "Far too small!"
The solution though Mum is a no-brainer
Don't buy me proper shoes please...
Buy me trainers!
