Oh, child of mine!















Oh, child of mine!

I do not wash clean clothes
And I don’t care what you say,
Pick the damned things off the floor
And put them all away!

Gravy and peas are not breakfast
And I don’t care what you say,
Eat that flaming toast right now,
Or you won’t go out to play!

Your finger is not a toothbrush
And I don’t care what you say,
Now brush your bloody teeth,
And scrub that plaque away!

You fecking do eat chicken
And I don’t care what you say,
Stop pushing it around the plate,
You’re eating it today!

The sink is not a toy
And I don’t care what you say,
Stop pouring shampoo down the drain,
You’ll block it up one day!

Bedtime was always eight
And I don’t care what you say,
Get your bloody PJ’s on,
It’s time to hit the hay!

The landing isn’t bed
And I don’t care what you say,
Calling me while standing there,
Is making me go grey!

Nightmares aren’t always bad
And I don’t care what you say,
You still run in for the safest snug,
Long may you stay that way!
