Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I learned the truth at just age three
no longer allowed to let pee free
and I no longer would require
my high chair that put me up much higher
the baby gate was ripped down too
up pics of trucks and down of Pooh
and I took the blame for all I threw
it wasn't very much like two

chorus

and those of us with baby faces
never needing social graces
sadly each gave up our stroll
without our wheels we'd walk not roll
and call to mom "please carry me"
hear "no son, you are now age three"
it isn't all it seems at age three

a brown eyed boy in Macy's best
now Wal Mart stuff fills up my chest
the novelty's worn out I guess
and now alone I must get dressed
and learning games are all I get
golly I miss my toy jet
my bear is gone and so's my bib
my training spoon and oh my crib

I wish that three were just a game
and I could go back to two again
freely without penalty cry
just hear the words, "what's up, little guy"?
people laughed - I was funny
nose would run, mom would wipe runny
I hear a new one's in her tummy

I played this game for better not worse
and I was in her tummy first
and now I'm all on my own
this type of thing, I can't condone
now they'd call out after me
and say son, this is baby Sammy
isn't she a real sweetie
they say she's got my eyes, I'm three

chorus

and those of us with baby faces
never needing social graces
sadly each gave up our stroll
without our wheels we'd walk not roll
and call to mom "please carry me"
hear "no son, you are now age three"
it isn't all it seems at age three

Uhhhhhhh......I do not know what to make of this parody. Can anybody interpret it?

I never thought that I would defend Ms. Terhune but . . . 2LD4U I think it's Linda expressing herself creatively. I may not be able to relate to it and I would not look to read such a work were it not penned by Linda. However, it's cogent and nicely written. It's been some time since I've cast a vote on one of her works but I'll give her three fives here just because I feel like it.

Not bad. Not bad at all. Except, you do know that Janis Ian, who did the original song, is openly gay, don't you? But if this is indicative of your non-political work, I say keep going. Scooter Libby would've wanted it that way.

Adorable.

Awe, such sweet comments - you all love me & you know it!
Linda - March 07, 2007 - Report this comment
Oh, to answer your question, Michael, I did not know she was "openly gay". Strange that you ask that; are you into gay women or something?
Immoral Liberal - March 07, 2007 - Report this comment
I'll take two gay women for $200 Linda. By the way, is there a difference to you between being "openly gay" and just gay? When you give up the fascist life that's when I'll make a decision of whether or not I love you. Until then - may your next president be a Clinton or an Obama - with love from me to you.

Very well done! 555.

It's cute and it's nicely written - the pace seems quite consistent with the OS as I remember it...good work, Linda. 5's

Yoidy & Paul Robinson - thank you, (blushing because I don't usually get nice things said), but thanks!
Linda - March 07, 2007 - Report this comment
Immoral Liberal - then you don't know what you are missing, I am a wonderfully super & nice person! Oh, and don't get your little immoral liberal head too excited about Hillary or Obama; you may get disappointed & surely you wouldn't want that! In fact, if you want to vote for a president nominee that is going to win, you should change your party & your name to moral conservative - then you won't be a loser any more! (just a bit of advice from the one you know you love)

poignant and plaintive Linda - ah, I remember three (or seen photos at least) - what a great age - 555
Immoral Liberal - March 08, 2007 - Report this comment
Funny Linda, that wonderful and nice person doesn't show through the venom - maybe that's too bad, maybe not. Oh yeah, I'll change parties shortly after I choose a religion - so let me know when hell freezes over. Dedicated to the one I love - I will admit that I am only the "Immoral Liberal" because of you. Kiss, kiss, hug, hug. IL

Kinda cute, altho' towards the end it started reminding me of Andrew Gold's "Lonely Boy" and that was rather scary... ;-D
Linda - March 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Stuart McArthur -- thank you for your comment, that was very sweet. -- -- --- --- --- --- Immoral Liberal - well since you believe in Hell - I guess you are almost there to religion, congratulations - I bet your mommy is proud! And you were the "immoral liberal" long before me, but nice try with the flattery though.... I can tell you are warming up to me! -- -- --- --- --- --- Meriadoc - thank you! And for you, I will try to make my next one less scary just for you!
