"Can I have some cake?”
“Ask your mother.”
“Can you draw a snake?”
“Ask your mother.”
“Help me change my socks!
Will you open up this box?
Have you ever seen a fox?"

“Ask your mother!”

 

“Can I go outside?”
“Ask your mother.”
“Push me down the slide!”
“Ask your mother.”
“Can I climb that tree?
Put this plaster on my knee!
What is eighty-nine times three?”

“Ask your mother!”

 

“How far away is France?”
“Ask your mother.”
“Teach me how to dance!”
“Ask your mother.”
“Can we get a kitten?
What’s the capital of Britain?
Read this poem that I’ve written…”


“ASK YOUR MOTHER!”
