Crocodile tears and elephant ears
all at the daycare today.
Dirty little diapers and messy nose wipers
all mixed together at play.
Little ones fall and then begin to ball
just another normal day.

The little girl screams because the little boy was mean
and there's too much noise to be heard.
The little boy yelled because he tripped and fell
and got paste all over his shirt.
All the children giggled and rolled around and wiggled
while playing outside in the dirt.

All the children ran while some played in the sand
while others would choose to roam.
Some would explore and open every door
and everything they found was their own.
The daycare workers sighed as their parents would arrive
and take their children home.
