Looking over the fence at other kids playing
Wishing that they would play with me, too.
But none of them pay any attention to me
So I start thinking about what I could do
Maybe I'll scream and they will come running
Then I'll have to pretend that I am hurt
OK! I do that and throw myself on the ground
But they just laugh as I roll around in the dirt.
I pick myself up and shake my self clean
And laugh right along with them
At least they finally noticed me
I'm wondering now should I do it again?
