Simple Minds


What does a child know……

That there are stomachaches

When they are hungry

In there minds that’s

What a parent is there

For but on this night,the

Final came,there was

Nothing to eat,like the

Words why,stale bread

Hot water and a little drop

Of what milk,that was left

Mama,had saved the hard

candy that was partial payment for

washing the floor,cherry was

the house favorite so we each got

One,we always had a name for

This concoction,to take our minds

Off of mama’s troubles,tonight it

Was champagne to whisk us off

from the troubles of having none
