Its not fair, Silly Sally, sobbed, as she stomped her way down the hall.                                  

I have to do chores and feed the dog, too,  Life isnt fair at all!


If life was fair, Lost Lori sighed, Id have a home, and chores too.                            

Id have parents, whod care when I cried.  If life was fairId be you!          


Its not fair, Picky Preston moaned, as he pushed his peas round the plate.   

I hate vegetables, and milk is gross.  This is a horrible fate!


If life was fair, Hungry Herb rebuked, Id eat anything, carrots, peas, or stew.          

My tummyd be full, and Id be content.  If life was fairId be you!                                                              

Its not fair, Foolish Francis griped, in class after school one day.                                

I dont like homework, its stupid, and hard, I wanna go outside and play!                 


If life was fair, Lost Louis replied, Id go to school, and do homework, too. 

Id learn to work numbers, and read and write.  If life was fairId be you!                                                                            

If life was fair, Flashy Frieda whined, I could wear whatever turned the guys on.

There wouldnt be dress codes and rules all the time.  Man, would I be the bomb!                                                                               

If life was fair, Poor Paula mused, Id have clean clothes, and a warm coat, too.       

I wouldnt care what they looked like at all.  If life was fairId be you!                     


If life was fair, Fast Frank bawled, I could roam around town every night.                

I wouldnt have curfews or have to call home.  Dude, all these rules just aint right!      


If life was fair, Runaway Rhonda wailed, I could go home when it was time to.                     

My parents would care, and would ask me to call.  If life was fairId be you!                                                           

If life was fair, Spoiled Sally bellyached, my dad would just zip his lip and get lost.

He wouldnt have rules and make be do stuff.  I would show HIM just whos boss!     


If life was fair?  Grieving Gary wept, Id give anything to be you.                        

My dad died, fighting in Iraq.  Man, you havent got a clue!
