To Grandma's, to Grandpa's! Got everything done,
Dishes and sweeping and vacuuming some.
Laundry was washed, dried, and finished just so,
Put into duffel bag, ready to go,
For mom and four littles, for church and for play.
"Everything's ready, let's get on our way."
Got down past Wadena, we're almost half way!
"Mom, where's the bag?" we then heard Stella say.
"Did anyone bring the big duffelbag out?"
Nobody answered. Oh, what a rout!
One hundred and fifty miles in our big rig
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.
There sat the duffel bag, nice as can be,
Looking so lonely by the Christmas tree.
Kids all to bed and now Mama's done, too.
We'll get up at six to try start number two.
