Wrinkly toes

Why do my toes go wrinkly
When I’m sleeping in the tub
They were not quite as crinkly
When I gave them such a scrub

My fingers are so prune-y
After dozing  where it’s wet
Like balloons let down and puny
They’re the wrinkliest fingers yet

I shouldn’t bathe when sleepy
Since I always seem to doze
And I think I look quite creepy
With my wrinkly hands and toes!
