Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
You have brains in your head
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose
You’re on your own. And you know what you know
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go
So be sure when you step - step with care and great tact
And remember that Life’s A Great Balancing Act
And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and . percent guaranteed.)
KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
Two More Days Till School
I'm finally going to school this year
And now the big day's almost here
I'll learn to write and count and read--
Only two more days till school
I got new pants and shirts and socks a
A brand-new red and blue lunch box
I'll paint and sing and dance and play--
Only one more day till school
My hair is washed, my sneakers squeak
I'm so excited, I can hardly speak!
New things to do, new friends to meet--
Hooray! It's the first day of school.
