please daddy, please…

Colin Cameron – United Kingdom


Hey dad, can you tuck me in

Then read me a story, about that magic violin

Where everyone danced, and slipper lost

Where cows are sold, at magic beans cost






The one with the apple, stuck in the throat

Of the troll under the bridge, and Billy Griff Goat


Where princesses are gorgeous,

Princes are brave

Battling dragons, avoiding fiery grave

You know I love it when you tell me of elves and wizards

Of Giants, of dwarves, of ghastly beasts gizzards

Of castles and turrets, haunted caves

Of madmen and spells, lost in the raves

Go on dad, it won’t take long

I’ll be asleep soon, if you sing my favourite song

I don’t mind if you read or sing

I just want you near, I’m your princess, you my king

So don’t make excuses, say a prayer with me

Sit on my bed, don’t be a parental absentee.
