In our youth
We made up plays
Actresses and actors
That was our way


Sometimes Dale and
Sometimes Roy
Sometimes trigger
Was our ploy


Sometimes a princess
Sometimes a king
We often pretended
That we had wing


A wooden box
Became a race car
Traveling near
Traveling very far


Once I remember
I was a fireman
Driving a fire truck
"As fast I can"


A raft on the pond
I was Huckleberry Finn
A walky-talky
Made out of can tin


Children play at life
Different than Mom or Dad
Playing in childhood
Is not at all bad
