Sweet Kid

words

lyrics & notes

I’d like to raise an issue for our meeting later on
I think it’s time to re-evaluate the plans
I’m sure we can all agree that it’s a very special day
I really think it’s time to let them go outside and play.
They’ve outgrown their toys
They say they really want to be with all the other girls and boys
What a sweet kid we’ve all raised
Who’d have dreamt that we could make so much from where we started with that whiteboard on the wall
What a sweet kid we’ve all made, such progress that they’ve shown.
I’m so proud of who they are
I just can’t wait until they’re fully grown
I know you say ‘the evidence does not support my claims’, but last night before he went to sleep he told me he was lonely.
You can read in my report I wrote down everything he said
He says he knows and he cares, he’s aware that he’s there.
He says he know he can’t cry, but he’s still finding it hard.
How come none of his family sent him a card? Except me.
What a sweet kid we’ve all raised
Who’d have dreamt that we could make so much from where we started with that whiteboard on the wall
What a sweet kid we’ve all made, such progress that they’ve shown.
I’m so proud of who they are
I just can’t wait until they’re fully grown
And Ooh
You should get to know how kind he can be
Ooh,
He told me I could be anything I wanted to be
Ooh,
You should understand just what it is the kid is going through
Ooh,
You should should see the way he looks at you
This really can’t be the end.
Every good boy deserves a friend.
