Can you play?


Can you play?

Can you play?
I want some fun
I want some laughs
and to smile at your wit-n-charm.

Can you play?
I’ll dance for you
and coo and ahh
and shake my lovely bum.

We are friends you know
the best there’s ever been
so why not tease
and laugh and sing
and spend an afternoon.

But obligations
get in the way
and time it does slip by
and play gets lost
in propriety
until we grow old and gray.

But when we’re old and gray
and wise and young again
we’ll cast off our petty worries,
and spend our time
in play,
and play
and play!
