Dead Battery Blues

by Samantha on July 19, 2012

I was given to you by sweet Auntie Sue

Nothing but love, all shiny and new

Little Luke can’t get resist my “WOO-WOO-WOO-WOO”

Now he’s crying the dead battery blues

 

A toy of the times I screech and  I shout

Nothing but noise both inside and out

I look good, I admit, but the kid’s got a pout

Now he’s crying the dead battery blues

 

Aunt Sue is so sweet, she just loves her dear kid

Her “kindness” and gifts makes poor mom flip her lid

Thought before purchase, not something she did

Now he’s crying the dead battery blues

 

Why toys have to honk, beep and shout, we don’t know

Mom says “technology-based sound-laden toys have to go!”

They’re driving her crazy, she’s ready to blow

Now he’s crying the dead battery blues

 

Mom seems so happy, she’s calm and serene

Luke is a mess, not a toy to be seen

They toys are all quiet, something they’ve never been

Now he’s crying he dead battery blues

 

“Dead” they are not, mom knows for a fact

The batteries are actually fully intact

Mom just switched them behind poor Luke’s back

Now he’s crying the dead battery blues

 

Aunt Sue has enjoyed years of pulling mom’s chain,

Never, never, never again

Mom finally implored, “No more toys, please refrain!”

Now he’s crying the dead battery blues
