LIKE A CHILD Everyone hates turnips But grownups always eat them Kids are much too smart To let a vegetable defeat them So you could eat your turnips like a grownup Or you could drop ‘em in your napkin Before they reach your mouth And smuggle them to the garbage Like a child, like a child, like a chi-chi-child Like a child, like a child, like a chi-chi-child Just do what you’ve got to do And smuggle them to the garbage like a child WAITING, WAITING School is over So here I wait (big sigh) For my mother Who, as usual, is late Waiting, waiting For a disorganized adult Nothing’s more exasperating Or more difficult WHY SHOULD A KID HAVE TO WALK Why should a kid who has run out of gum Have to beg for a ride to the store Which by car is just minutes away But on foot could take half of the day And why can a grownup zoom off in the car To a party that’s right down the block And when even your pet gets a ride to the vet Oh why should a kid have to walk
