New Year Resolutions are fine,
But they’re just not enough
So I say a prayer to the Big Boss
When what I want is tough
For the year of two thousand and twelve
I said a short prayer
In hopes of getting the help I need
from the boss way up there
“Dear God, I wouldn’t ask for this,
If it was just a whim.
Please give me a fat bank account
And a body that’s slim”
“Last year I prayed for the same thing
But it was all in vain
This year be careful, Dear God, and don’t
Get them mixed up again!
“Well my son you don’t understand
I heard both of your prayers
And what you asked for, was not ignored
It’s just not in my plan”
