TOMBOY DAYS

WE HAD A BUNCH OF BUDDIES
THAT WE HUNG AROUND EACH DAY,
HARMONIZING ON FAVORITE SONGS
TO PASS THE TIME AWAY

SOMETIMES WE'D GO TO THE  CAMEL PATH,
WE NAMED IT AFTER THE HUMPS
AND RIDE OUR BIKES , ALL AROUND,
ENJOYING ALL THE BIG BUMPS

SOMETIMES WE'D PLAY TOUCH FOOTBALL,
ALL UP AND DOWN THE STREET
OR  PRACTICE FIGURE SKATING
AND SPINNING ON OUR FEET.

BUT WE ALL KNEW ,WHEN THE LIGHTS CAME ON,
IT WAS GOOD NIGHT FOR YOU .
SO OFF WE'D GO TO OUR OWN LITTLE BEDS
WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW SLEEPY HEADS.
