All Play and No Work


It’s time to play I say
Please put all work away
Because I want to play.

I want to play clubbing and hugging,
I want to play flirting and no fighting,
I want all but to play before sunset.
And when the sun rise I will get wise,
I’ll wake up early and play how to work.

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
