“The Easy Choice”
I’d really like to be a clown
and dress in silly clothes.
I’d like to wear those great big shoes
and wear a big, red nose.
Yes, circus life sure looks like fun
and for it I do hanker,
or maybe I’ll be like my dad
and end up as a banker.
I said, “The choice will not be hard!”
Mom said, “That’s really great!”
I said, “The circus seems the best.”
Mom said, “That’s cause you’re eight.”
