作曲：When Will My Life Begin?
3 2 1
7 AM, the usual morning lineup
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
Sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15
And so I'll read a book
Or maybe two or three
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I'll play guitar and knit
And cook ,basically ?
Just wonder when will my life begin?
Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb
Sew a dress!
And I'll read the books
If I have time to spare
I'll paint the walls some more
I'm sure there's room somewhere
And then I'll brush and brush
and brush and brush my hair
Stuck in the same place I've always been
And I'll keep wandering
And wandering and wondering
When will my life begin?
Lights will appear
Just like they do on my birthday each year.
What is it like ?
Out there where they glow?
Now ,that I'm older
Mother might just
Let me go ......
