Seven Years (Of Primary School)

Once I was five years old,

My momma told me,             

Go get yourself to school

Or you'll be lonely

Once I was five years old

It was a big, big place,

But we thought we were bigger.

Pushing teachers to the limits,

We were learning quicker.

By six we're adding up

Subtracting larger numbers

Reading books to help

Expand our imagination

Once I was seven years old,

My daddy told me,

Go get yourself to school

Or you'll be lonely.

Once I was seven years old

I always had that dream

As I started Key Stage two

So I started writing songs

I started writing stories

Something about that glory,  

Never seemed to bore me,

Cause only those who taught me

Really got to know me

Once I was eight years old,

My story got told,

Before the morning sun, when I was lonely.

Once I was eight years old       

I only see my goals,

I don't believe in failure.

Cause I know the smallest voices,

They can make it major,

I got my friends with me

They'll always be in favour          And if we don´t see before I leave,

I hope to see you later.

Once I was nine years old

My story got told                   

I was writing about everything,

I saw before me

Once I was nine years old


I´m still learning about life

Teachers  gave  knowledge for me

And now I sing them all my song

And I can tell them stories         

Most of my friends are with me

They're also seeking glory

And even though I part from some

They'll always be there for me.

Soon I´ll be eighteen years old

And if I work hard

I'll go out and change

The world for better.

I hope that I'll be happy

And maybe write  a letter              I hope  to come and visit        

Once or twice in future.
