As my childhood passes,
As my innocence shies,
As my naive attitude fades,
I can see through your lies;
You said a tooth fairy took my tooth,
Well guess what? I stayed up all night to spy,
You made her up; it was you,
You guys told yet another lie;
You said that Santa Claus left all those presents,
Under the Christmas tree,
I cannot believe that you tried
To hide the real truth from me;
You told me that if I ate a seed,
A watermelon tree would grow.
Well you know what I found?
Watermelons grow in bushes you know.
You told me out of all the little girls
I was the best, you said it was true,
But recently I heard Mrs Queenie
Saying the exact thing to Wilmy Sue.
You told me I could do whatever I want
And wouldn’t fail,
I tried to reach for the stars
But to no avail.
You told me a couple of lies,
A bunch of stories and a half truth
And I naively believed you
In my innocent, unperceived youth…
