Playin' In

Woke up to skies all graying
Sad song on the radio playing
 Want to roll over and hit snooze
See you tomorrow....

Let's just stay home and cut school
A day to forget about old rules
We'll make our own as we go along...
But we won't have none...
No we won't have none

And it would be lovely
Groovin' like a Sunday
Put aside your cares
For just today

Time for a selfish holiday

We'll build a pillow mansion
A top secret space to crash in
Don't have to tell nobody where
Why would we wanna?...

A do not disturb staycation
Members of the Hiber Nation
Hold all our calls until the Spring
Cuz we've gone dreamin'
Yeah, we've gone dreamin'

And it would be lovely
Groovin' like a Sunday
Put aside your cares
For just today

We're gonna stay inside
And play

And let the world alone today...

Peace - Rene 2009

  8. I wish you would have been MY teacher Rene, sounds like you really get what a kid thinks about all day.

    Sunny skies in my neck of the wood today, think I'll play outside!
