The Kids' Song (Live) Lyrics

Artist: Moxy Früvous
Album: The B Album

We took the babies we knew and the toddlers we knew,
Said we'd like to get a slice of life from your point of view
'Cause you cry and laugh a lot more than us older folks do
It's a Spicer show especially for you.

The markers that I just got are non-toxic
And my sister says the lake is quite dioxic
I don't know what these words mean,
I just want to play where it's clean
But something in the backyard make my dog sick.

Is there something you like? (squirt-gunning my dog!)
Is there something you hate? (when my turtle ate my gerbil)
Is it fun to take a bath (no...sometimes...yes) balbum-(yes, no, sometimes, yeah)
Should Quebec separate?
Well, we'll try and handle that for you
And make a better world, so you can have kids too.

My mom is French, and she's a candy striper
When my dad sings 'Save the Queen' she gets real hyper
She says "Douglas, keep your paws
Off my Notwithstanding clause"
And they argue, and forget about my diaper (gross!)

Is there something you like? (Jurassic Park)
Is there something you despise? (when I ate too many crayons)
Do you like to play with dolls? (not dolls, action figures)
Do you have a gender bias? (my sister is three....gender biases)
Well, we'll try to handle that for you
And make a better world, so you can have kids too.

Hello, I'm Gabby and I just got here from Chile (welcome Gabby!)
I like Canada, except that it is chilly
I met Premier Bob Rae, and he ain't no Pinochet
My mother makes a spicy bowl of chili (three rhymes!)
Is there something you like? (squirt-gunning my Shreddies)
Is there something you hate (reject)? (food that isn't pizza)
What's your favourite colour? (fuschia...teal)
Is that politically correct?
Well, we'll try and handle that for you
And make a better world, so you can have kids too.

Now the kids have held court, and we're glad to report
That from now on we'll take orders from the young and the short
In fact, adults should only speak up as a final resort
When there's a grown-up problem through which one must sort
Trust the people for whom living is a sport
If you need us we'll be backyard in our new treefort.

From the Liner:
1991- In '91, the Spicer Commission gathered reflections on Canada's fragile unity.
We put it to the overlooked toddler lobby and got this little nugget.
