Listen to me mama, to what I have to say,
Later child, run along and play.
Listen to me papa, and please make me smile,
I will when I have time, in a little while.
Listen to me nanny; let me talk to you,
Don’t bother me child, I have lots to do.
Listen to me teachers, hear my word,
Children are to be seen & not heard.
Listen to me my foreign husband,
But he can´t understand.
Listen to me sons; I have things to say,
Sorry mum, we´re off to play.
No need for listening now, for I am on my way,
And have nothing more to say.
