And The Bunny Went Hop
Copyright 1989 Daniel E. BiemerTake me back to that playground, mamma, I wanna dig in the sand. Take me back to that swingset, daddy, life was simpler then. The merry-go-round just made me dizzy! Come on, let's do it again. Show me that bug you found there, Susie - I'll be your best best friend! And the bunny went hop And the birdie went tweet And all through the sandbox They were stomping their feet And mommy went "Gaa"! And daddy went "Whirrrrr"! They said "you're my little boy" and "You're my little girl." Simpler were our sorrows then, and simpler still were our joys Never had to worry when the girls'd play with the boys Never had us a band, but we could dance the whole afternoon Music came from the heart and no one cared if we were in tune Chorus Got an idea honey, as I watched you tasting the dirt All us crazy grownups should go to play instead of to work Meeting times and contracts and proposals simply would stop And only those on the monkey bars would climb their way to the top.
