Here’s another song. Not work at home this time, but a situation all parents know – just why are the kids being soooo quiet?

Silent kids, quiet kids,
Wait a minute, that’s not good.
Walking down the hall, toys on the floor
Stepped on a bunch of them, now my foot’s sore.
legosCan’t yell, or I’ll scare the children!
Can’t yell, or I’ll scare the children.

Silent kids, quiet kids,
In their room, I’m worried now!
Peek through the door quietly, what do I see?
Colors on the wall, the hamster’s free.
Come on, they know better than that!
Come on, they know better than that.

Silent kids, quiet kids,
Now I see, so much more.
They found my makeup, used it on dolls,
On themselves, and yes, in the halls.
What a mess to clean up!
What a mess to clean up.

self portraitSilent kids, quiet kids.
Now they start, see I’m here.
Mommy, mommy, we were just having fun.
And we promise, this mischief is done.
Besides, he started it first!
Besides, she started it first!

Silence kids, quiet kids.
Time to clean up this mess.
Catch the hamster, scrub up the walls.
Put the toys away, especially in the hall.
But Mommy, that’s just so hard!
But Mommy, that’s just so hard!

Silent kids, quiet kids.
Bedtime at last, what a day!
Now I get to rest, wonder what’s in store,
For tomorrow, I know they’ll do more.
Who knows what they’ll come up with!
Who knows what they’ll come up with!
