[Em]I've watched the children come and go
[A2]A late long march in[Em]to spring
I [A2]sit and watch those chil[Em]dren
Jump in the tall [A2]grass
[Em]Leap the sprinkler
[A2]Walk in the ground
Bicy[Em]cle clothespin [A2]spokes
The sound the [Em]smell of swingset [A2]hands
D (Riff)
I will try to sing a happy song
D (Riff)
I'll try and make a happy game to play
Come play with me I whispered to my new found friend
Tell me what it's like to go outside
I've never been
Tell me what it's like to just go outside
I've never been
And I never will
I'm not supposed to be like this
I'm not supposed to be like this
But it's okay
Hey those kids are looking at me
I told my friend myself
Those kids are looking at me
They're laughing and they're running over here
They're laughing and they're running over here
What do I do?
What can I do?
What should I do?
What do I say?
What can I say?
I said I'm no supposed to be like this
Let's try to find a happy game to play
Let's try to find a happy game to play
I'm not supposed to be like this
But it's okay...okay
