The White Man’s Burden

He’s not invited to my tea party but
Georgie comes anyway
With his mouth-made explosions and his toy machine gun
With his toy fighter jets and his smudgy runny nose

Georgie comes anyway
Georgie crept beneath the table
With his toy fighter jets and his smudgy runny nose
He jumped up and cracked the teapot

Georgie crept beneath the table
He spoiled my pink birthday dress
He jumped up and cracked the teapot
We screamed and ran away

He spoiled my pink birthday dress
He wanted to play Cowboys and Indians
We screamed and ran away
He wanted to be a cowboy, so we were Indians

He wanted to play Cowboys and Indians
Georgie wasn’t invited but he came anyway
He wanted to be a cowboy, so we were Indians
He threw cherry tarts like hand grenades

Georgie wasn’t invited but he came anyway
You are cordially invited to my tea party but GEORGIE ISN’T
He threw cherry tarts like hand grenades
Mommy didn’t see Georgie shooting at us with his cap gun and distorted face

You are cordially invited to my tea party but GEORGIE ISN’T
He’s not invited to my tea party
Mommy didn’t see Georgie shooting at us with his cap gun and distorted face
With his mouth-made explosions and his toy machine gun
