If I Were In Charge of the World

with one comment

If I were in charge of the world
I’d cancel school,
Older sisters,
Any kind of school work, and also mean moms.

If I were in charge of the world
There’d be nice sisters,
Higher allowances, and
Basketball baskets twelve-inches higher.

If I were in charge of the world
You wouldn’t have sadness,
You wouldn’t have bad times,
You wouldn’t have messiness,
Or “don’t hit your brother”
You wouldn’t even have brothers.

If I were in charge of the world
An ice-cream sundae would be for dinner
All movies would be scarier.

And a person who sometimes forgot to wash,
And sometimes forgot to shower
Would still be allow to be in charge of the world
