I Wanna Try It

From the album Stayin' Over Buy Now

- 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!    

Chorus

 

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!

Chorus

 

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,

Chorus

 

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!

Chorus

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!
