I hold my legs up in the air

Kick and scream I just don’t care

You hold me up and I still wince

I’m a child

Yes, I’m a kid

I boot you so hard from my frustration

Don’t swear at me

Despite temptation

I scratch and claw

I want my own way

You say tomorrow

I want today!

You can’t stop me from screaming

Fairies, and wings on monkeys

Let me believe in

You keep saying I should listen to you

And I see your tired eyes too

But I want what I want and I will get it

But I’m a child

eventually I will forget it.
