May I ask you a question?


May I ask you a question?
One I have never asked before?
I will promise that will be my last
But will still ask you another four!

Why did humpty dumpty sit on the wall?

Did he hurt his head on his fall?

Did the ambulance come to get him at all?

Do you know who made the 911 call?


I just want to know.. how tall trees grow?

I just want to know... what makes the rainbow?

I just want to know ... where the bird flew?
I just want to know ... the names of the neighbors too!

One moment of silence is all I ask
Just a moment to pen a thought!
One moment of no questions at all,
Just a moment to give my brain a rest!


But all I have to do is look at your innocent face,

All I have to do is look at you my curious imp

All I have to do is see your bright smile,
And I am ready to answer the questions!

Bring them on you little curious child of mine,

And let me bask in your innocence!
