Oops A Daisy



"Eeny, meany, miney, moe" "We all fall down and go boom" "Oops a daisy" and "Shake a leg" And my favourite, "Silly baboon" Heard 'em all a million times Oh to go back to those days Just to experience the fun again The simple games we played Not a solitary care in the world We'd come in for lunch and dinner Then off we'd go exploring again After all, we were just beginners Experiencing things every day Like skipping rocks on the pond The joys of the world around us It was like waving a magic wand Too bad we all have to grow up Do serious adult like things I'd much rather travel back in time And jump and skip and sing © Jack Ellison 2014

    Wow! Every time Dragon hits a tree and falls down- He says OOOPS a Daisy, or Opps when he's hit one two many. The penguins usually finish with 'And we all fall down and go boom' as they run for their lifes from under the tree. Then I holler' Shake a leg' to get them to hurry up! Usually one of the trolls grabs the penguins and runs while another troll tries to catch Dragon. The Elf King wants us to save the trees, So Dragon aims for the trolls and we even use direction light batons to help. LOL

    I work with juveniles that have been in trouble with the law and I don't think many of them have ever had days like this, just being kids. They are all too busy trying to be adults. Sometimes I tell my own kids to just put their gaming systems down and go outside and play! I would give anything for those days too.
