Skateboard by Libby Hathorn


My sister has a skateboard

And you should see her go,

Fast, fast as light

on her skateboard,

Fast as fast and never slow.

She can jump and twirl

Do a twist and a turn,

What I want to know

Is why I can’t learn?

My sister’s really nice to me

She said she’d teach me soon

To ride the skateboard

Like she does

And then you’ll see me zoom

Down the path

Across the park

Oh you’ll see me go,

Fast, fast, fast

On that skateboard,

Fast as fast
