"DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO"

Verse 1
I woke up this morning
From a funny dream,
I dreamed that everybody
Just did what they wanted to,
Just what they wanted to.

Verse 2
With no rules to follow,
I thought I'd be scott free
To do just what I wanted,
And no one would bother me,
Whoopee! No one would bother me!

Bridge 1
I stayed home in the morning,
Didn't have go to school,
Later, I got hungry; and to my surprise
There was no food!
Because me mama hadn't made lunch,
And put off the shopping, too.
She said to me, "So sorry, but we
Just do what we want to do, remember?
Do what we want to do."

Verse 3
Then I thought of something
That would be fun to do:
Take the afternoon and
Wander around the zoo,
Just 'cause I wanted to!

Verse 4
I ran down to the bus stop,
But there were no buses running,
'Cause there were no drivers working,
'Cause none of them wanted to.
They did what they wanted to.

Bridge 2
I had to walk a long way
To make it to the zoo.
The traffic was all crazy
Cause they all disobeyed the rules.
When I finally got there
And stood outside the gate,
The man hadn't come to open it,
They said I would just have to wait.
He decided to sleep in late.

Verse 5
I was glad to find out
It was just a dream.
If all the rules were broken,
The world would run out of steam,
And fall apart at the seams!

Ending
We need organization,
Or things just go berserk.
We have an obligation
To help everything to work
Now I'm glad
We don't always get to do
Just what we wanna do!
