Boredom

Lyrics to "I'll Never Fear Ghosts Again" by Soccer Team. This is a children's song but I really love it because it does such a good job capturing how overwhelming a kid's life can be, all the demands they have to face. It comes from a punk/children's album entitled "Play" and the tempo of the song is quite fast, pushing, pushing, pushing just like a busy kid's day. I marked my favorite phrases.

Learn to count, learn to read
Tie your shoes, pull the strings
If you want to build a robot,
study harder.

Play some music, try your best
Not too loud you might you might go deaf
and if your pitch is flat you need to make it sharper.
Take a bath, go to bed.
Say good night and when its said
You can close your eyes and dream about your day.
Knife and fork on the left, Knife and spoon on the right
When your done your mom will turn to you and say,

Chorus:
If clocks have hands and tubs have feet
Then shapes that bend they must have knees
If knees they knock on my house that creaks
Then ghosts aren’t real they’re just folks in sheets.
Folks in sheets, folks in sheets, folks in sheets
Got nothing to fear ‘cause ghosts aren’t real.

Take your toys twice a day, bake a cake and say hooray
Turn your TV off and just enjoy the silence.
Look both ways to cross the street, eat your veggies then a treat.
If you're picked on think of what’s your stand on violence.
Cussin' makes you mean, gets your parents good and steamed
If they hear you they will wash your mouth with soap.
Best to just be good when your hanging in the hood
There are times when you’ll be mad but you will cope.

Chorus:
If clocks have hands and tubs have feet
Then shapes that bend they must have knees
If knees they knock on my house that creaks
Then ghosts aren’t real they’re just folks in sheets.
Folks in sheets, folks in sheets, folks in sheets
Got nothing to fear ‘cause ghosts aren’t real.


This is evidence of how bored I am at work now that I have no school work to fill the down time. Share with me your favorite time-filling websites!
