When Will My Life Begin



When Will My Life Begin - Sassydee

Seven am the usual morning lineup

Start on the chores and sweep 'till the floor's all clean

Polish and wax do laundry and mop and shine up

Sweep again and by then it's like seven fifteen

And so I'll read a book

Or maybe two or three

I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery

I'll play guitar and knit

And cook and basically

Just wonder when will my life begin

Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking

Paper mache a bit of ballet and chess

Pottery and ventriloquy candle making

Then I'll stretch maybe sketch take a climb

Sew a dress

And I'll reread the books

If I have time to spare

I'll paint the walls some more

I'm sure there's room somewhere

And then I'll brush and brush

And brush and brush my hair

Stuck in the same place I've always been

And I'll keep wanderin' and wanderin'

And wanderin' and wonderin'

When will my life begin

And tomorrow night

The lights will appear

Just like they do on my birthday each year

What is it like

Out there where they glow

Now that I'm older

Mother might just

Let me go
