One is in the habit of forgetting things a lot
You see, getting in to my mind
Sometimes can talk about things and jump
From subject and throws up questions
Should ask this, ask that
Did I ask what I’d forgotten to ask?
There’s a wiggle and there’s a waggle
How could one describe the difference between the two?
