Give me my cheese, I might say please, especially if you got my favorite car keys.


Grown men zap
even while asleep
taking a nap
That little boy down inside
will always confide
Hey old man
take me for a ride
Don't even worry about
the slip and slide
as long as you don't do a
crime or committ homicide

Grown men think that
they are on their own
and that the little boy in them
has disappeared or gone
Little boy will always
sit on his thrown
and the man may reap or
suffer from what he's sown
especially if he was young and
stupid always picking the bone

I guess we all know
that some boys never grow
Michael Jackson as a child
sung about Ben the rat
When he got grown he kept
a monkey where he lived at
Quite a few big boys
fumble and fall
Even the president can't
put down his basketball
As far as I'm concerned
with my own toys
they are definitely a
big part of my joys
Every man knows that
he has to mature and grow
and some toys he has
to let go
but he will forever swim
the fun river that flow
