Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Playing touch football out in the park,
The quarterback called my name.
"Go long down the sideline, I'll throw you the bomb,
We're gonna win this game."

He tried to pretend, "Why, nothing, my dear..."
Mom took a look at the coffee-spattered room,
She looked at the empty coffee cup.
My sister started snickering, Mom started giggling,
And then, we all cracked up! 'Cause sometimes....
