Today was the day to register my little one for school
We left the school with him crying it was so cruel
He had to be 5 by Aug.1 but sept.8 is his birthday
Now he has to wait another year and I said no way

It brought his little eyes to tears 
I tell you a mother's pride is a mother's fears
I feel so bad because he is so smart
Now we have to see if he qualifies for head start

I have no answers for him that's what really hurt me
As a mother and a parent this just shouldn't be
He cried all the way home what could I do
When all his little heart wants is to go to school
