Your Pace or Mine
I don't come out of my shell very often
'cause it takes me 'bout half the day.
And I'll never be thrilled about traveling
until I find a faster way.
For me, crossing over a speed bump
is like you trekking 'cross the state.
And I never can keep an appointment,
'cause I'm always 'bout three days late.
If you raced me against a turtle,
I'd still have no fair chance of winning.
He'd zoom right past the finish line
but I'd still be back at the beginning.
It's a leisurely life, but it has its drawbacks.
It's a jungle out there when you're slow.
And if I could just run about 20 times faster,
there'd be no more escargot.
WHAT AM I?
