Don’t Grow Up Too Soon

Don’t run in the house,

This isn’t a race track.

Don’t grow up too soon.

 

 Pick up your toys, 

Your room’s like a bomb site. 

Don’t grow up too soon.

  

 Eat what you’re given, 

There isn’t a menu. 

Don’t grow up too soon.

   

 No talking while eating, 

Mind your manners. 

Don’t grow up too soon.

  

 Eat all your veggies, 

Or you’ll get no dessert. 

Don’t grow up too soon.

  

 Brush your teeth, 

The dentist’s not cheap. 

Don’t grow up too soon.

  

 That’s not how you do it, 

You must pay attention! 

Don’t grow up too soon.

   

Would you please keep it down, 

I’m watching the ball game. 

Don’t grow up too soon.

 

 Pick up your clothes, 

I’m not your maid.

Don’t grow up too soon.

 

 Don’t talk back,

 Just sit there and listen.

Don’t grow up too soon.

 

Do as you’re told,

While you’re under this roof.

Don’t grow up too soon.

 

My, the house is real quiet,

Where are the kids?
