Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie;
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out to play,
Georgie Porgie ran away.
God Came To Call Back Home
God came to call on me today,
But I didn't know it was He.
He came as a beggar in need of help,
In anger I made him flee.
I'm really thankful that it was God
And not some other friend,
For if I had treated a friend this way
It would surely be the end!
I'm thankful now that God is love,
And won't stop loving me;
For even when I forced Him out,
His love never changed, you see.
Did you ever go back to where you lived
before you lived where you are?
Did you ever go back and see the house
that was home before moving afar?
It's kind of sad to see the place
much smaller than it was before;
And know if you go and ring the bell
your mother won't answer the door.
The friends you knew are grown and changed
they're not the same as before,
And then you know, you finally know,
You can't go back any more.
The golden hills and green oak trees
Are calling now to me.
They hold so many memories
Of times so gay and free
Of days long past; such happy day,
And what they meant to me.
Those day-long walks, just by myself
Among those golden hills,
Then down along the quiet beach
Where wealth of Asia spills
Oaken planks and fishermen's floats.
A lonely tide pool fills.
I'd stand and watch above the beach
And hear the lonely cry
Of seagulls in their daily search
For food 'tween sea and sky.
They only think of here and now
And never wonder why.
The sun begins its nightly plunge
In water gold and green,
Then paints the sky with pink, then blue
To close it's darkened screen.
The picnic fires along the beach
Complete my memory's scene.
I wander, in my memory still
On golden hills and beach
And see a younger, carefree self
Forever out of reach,
That glories in his youth and strength.
He walks with me, this beach.
Goosey, Goosey, Gander
Goosey, goosey, gander,
Whither shall I wander?
Upstairs, and downstairs,
And in my lady's chamber.
There I met an old man
Who wouldn't say his prayers!
I took him by the left leg
And threw him down the stairs.

Today is a grin day,
a broad sweep across the face day
An ear-to-ear cheek-to-cheek
twinkle in the eye day.
Today is a grin day.
A tingly, happy jumpy in the skin day.
A take your friends along day.
A share it with a song day.
For after all those days of tears,
today is a GREAT BIG GRIN DAY!
