There’s good mud and bad mud and mud in between
The thing is with mud you don’t know where it’s been
It’s come from the hills or has stayed on the plain
It sometimes just washes on past with the rain
Whatever the type you encounter today
Don’t worry when covered, it will wash away!
If mud is a thing that you really don’t like
I wouldn’t suggest that you go for a hike
For surely when ambling as every man should
You’re sure to encounter a great deal of mud
