- we learn best by trying it ourselves!
I WANNA TRY IT!
Cho: I wanna try it! I wanna try it!
Give me a chance to learn
I wanna try it! I wanna try it!
It’s my turn!
My Dad bought a toy for me,
He opened up the box
He read directions, set it up,
Then he broke it while I watched! Not again Dad!
My grandma said she’d teach me how to
Bake a cake with her.
But she did everything herself,
And she’d only let me stir! Awww Grandma!
Sometimes I do jigsaw puzzles
All spread out on the floor
My Mom comes, finds all the pieces
Then it’s no fun no more! Yeah,
My sister says that math is easy,
She says “It’s really fun!”
She helped me with my homework problems,
But she finished everyone! And that’s okay, but,
I’m too young, or I’m too little, or
I’m not strong enough!
What I am is, “tired of watching”
You guys do my stuff! Yeah,
I already watched you do it!
An’ I sat patiently
I know I can do it now,
C’mon, hand it over to me!

Extra verse & chorus by Gary Schapper 1990
Sometimes I’m a little stronger, than a friend of mine
Sometimes it’s good to remember, to give that friend some time
He wants to try it! She wants to try it! Give them a chance to learn
He wants to try it! She wants to try it! Let’s take turns!
