- perfectionism pressures
I am always good as gold
I do exactly what I’m told
I do what the grown-ups say
I don’t complain, ’cause it’s okay.
I don’t talk back, I don’t get mad
I don’t upset my Mom and Dad
I don’t get sick, I comb my hair
I wear clean socks and underwear
I fold my clothes and clean my room
I dust and sweep and vac-cu-um
I clean-up mud and dirt and grime
I always go to bed on time
But sometimes when I’m all alone
I have to sing this little song
It really helps me feel better
If you want to, sing along,
Chorus: Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go,
(Pant, pant, Let’s do it again, okay? C’mon!)
(Pant, pant, there, now doesn’t that feel better?)
I don’t make noise or laugh or cry
I don’t stick out my tongue or lie
I don’t fidget, I sit still
When I have soup, I never spill, it!
I wash dishes ev’ry night
I do my homework, I don’t fight
I follow rules, I don’t chew gum
I never even sucked my thumb!
I never watch the T.V. set
At school, I am the teacher’s pet
I have the best grades on the list
Some day I’ll be a therapist!
Your parents prob’ly wanted you
To be a perfect kid like me
But maybe that’s a little crazy,
Sing along if you agree, . . .
