Author's Note: Now, I'm not much of a poem person but I do have a musical ear and compose songs with it. A lot of them. This particular one sounds nicer if you actually hear it with the melody and the guitar, but for now, here are just the lyrics. Enjoy!

Crayons and Colored Pencils

By Jane Bishop

Get your Play-doh out.
Sit there, look about.
Make a dinosaur.
Set it on the floor.

Get your finger-paint.
Come on, no restraint.
Let's go make a mess.
Well, it's for the best.

Ooooh,
Childhood's calling.
Ooooh,
Childhood's calling.

Crayons and colored pencils.
Crayons and colored pencils.

Get your sidewalk chalk.
We'll go for a walk.
Bring your hula-hoop.
Yo-yo, do a loop.

Let me demonstrate.
Use a roller-skate.
Ride the wagon, red.
I won't go to bed.

Ooooh,
Childhood's calling.
Ooooh,
Childhood's calling.

Crayons and colored pencils.
Crayons and colored pencils.
Crayons and colored pencils.

Get your paper and,
Colored pencils blend.
Crayons shade in, too.
Childhood's calling to,

Me…
