Jimmy Brown

Thanks to Jessie Leone, who sent this song to me!

Run and jump and skip and fall
You think you're tall but you're so small
Mama calls for supper no more play
Soon'll come tomorrow, it'll be another day


Singing hey-la-di-da, oh-la-di-de
Oh-lee-oat-an-oh and alli-oxen-free
Oh, I can run faster than Jimmy Brown
I'm the king of the mountain and you'll never get me down
Up bright and early, got a lot to do
Gonna build a castle and go to the zoo
And visit Mother Goose in storybook land
Why does mommy hold my hand?

I'm pretty old now, five and a half
Gonna be like daddy and never laugh
Cause when you're old you've gotta be strong
You're not a child for very long

All grown up now, on my own
Oh, how I wish I could go back home
And play all day with my old friends
Why does childhood have to end?
