But For Now_I Better

Not Get Wet!

I know my sailboat isn't too big but

It's fun watching the wind blow it's sail

One day when I'm big like my dad

I'll buy a sailboat longer than a whale.

For now I have to worry about my mama

Because she watches everything that I do

If I get my clothes wet I'm in trouble

Because she still treats me like I'm only two.

When I'm grown and buy my big sailboat

Like one I saw when we went to the ocean

I bet my mama will really get mad with me

But I'll still go sailing when I take the notion.

But For now_I better not get wet!
