Birds and the Bees

At first you thought that I was too rule...bound
You wanted me to lift my head from the...ground

But you weren't convincing me
I just coudn't see
I thought dirt had more history
Than the birds and the bees and the trees

Then one day by...chance
I risked just one...glance

And I was blown I away
But it just wasn't that...day

So I forced my head...down
Tried not to...frown

And life went on
But part of me was...gone

I remembered it for a...while
The thought of it made me...smile

So after some...time

I got myself in...line

Raised my head
It was better than you'd said!

It was all so new
(it was all so new)
Did you know that the sky is blue?
(did you know that the sky is blue!)

But it had to end...
And I needed to mend

You started to worry
that the ups and downs weren't doing good for me
And i think I agreed...

But I knew it couldn't last
I didn't want to leave it there for the past

So I decided not to waste the time left
I became rather deft

At breaking all the rules
At winning all my duels

And I could stop--
any time I want to
And I'll mop--
up all the mess

So stop forcing me to behave!

I caved
to you

And now you want
me to

Go back...

But you aren't convincing me!
I can now see
That the birds and the bees and the trees
have more history
Than all the dirt there's ever be...!

I'm practicing what you preach

This is great!!! you should start writing the music for it. And if you can't, what my sister does is have someone from the music department from our school right it for her. Keep up the good work!

Thanks again!!! I write music for most of my stuff (including this), but I have trouble finding the chords and notes on an instrument, which is really annoying.
