When We Were Kids

We built some houses with some sticks,
And others built them with some straws.
We ran to houses built with bricks,
Running from a giant paw.

We ran down streets with police cars,
And flew up high with magic coats.
We raced with cars in streets of tar,
And in the sea with Pirate boats.

We talked to birds and talked to snakes,
And turned to trees with magic sticks.
We trod in heavens built of cakes,
You'd lick and lick and lick and lick.

We traveled far to outer space
Right inside a magic house.
Went back in time to see the place
Where Snowbell kissed a friendly mouse.

We changed tables to pots of gold,
And sought a Princess with a shoe.
We fought with men that were so bold,
Teamed up with elves and made some shoes.

We had no time to think of needs,
And worry about gasoline.
I'd fly back to when we were kids;
If I can get a time machine.
