the things kids say [Dec. 25th, 2004|08:06 am]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |kidney thieves-layer]


my mum got this book from one of the children she tutors.
it's at the same time lol funny and tears to your eyes poignant.


Paul aged 3, whispered: ''Mummmy. I know a dirty word.'
'Do you Paul? asked his shocked mother.
'Dustbin,' confided the child.

When the Baby was borned
Joseph said to Mary'what am i going to do about
This little born Baby Christ?
I never knew it was going to be like this,
With all these angels and kings
And shepherds and stars and things;
It's got me worried, I can tell you,
On Christmas Day in the morning.'
Mary said to Joseph;
Everything's going to be all right,Because the Angel told me not to fear;
So just hold up the lamp,
So i can see the dear funny sweet little face
Of my darling Little-born Jesus Baby Christ'.
Joseph said to Mary,
'Behold the handy-man of the Lord.'
Happy Christmas, happy Christmas'
Christ is born today.

God

When I was little,
I thought God was like Captain Birdseye
Without the fishfingers.
I thought that God
Always smiled and had a friendly face,

That he was tall and kind
And never ever shouted.

Now I am older
I think that God
Is like an old old man
Without any children.
I think that God
Has a sad and tired face,
That he cries
And groans
To see the world
He made.
