I Feel Better Now

When my front tooth fell out

Grandpa told me not to worry

That a new tooth would soon grow back

I sure hope it will hurry

Because right now I'm ashamed to smile

And that's an honest fact.

One good thing did happen though

The Tooth Fairy visited me last night

She placed a dollar under my pillow

So all and all I guess I'll be okay

If my new tooth will grow back right.

Grandma showed me a picture

Of my Mama when she was eight

Mama looked just like I do

Because she was missing

A front tooth too!

I feel better now.
