Blue Flannel Shirts


I donít like puppies and kittens

and dollyís that wet

Give me road graders, legoís

and new erector sets

Keep your ribbons and bows

your pink frilly skirts

I like old jeans and worn boots

and blue flannel shirts

Donít ask me to tea parties

with squishy mud pies

Iím building skyscrapers, bridges

And ships that will fly

I wonít wait for some knight

on his elegant horse

I dream that Iím famous

and rich of course

Iíll be a doctor or lawyer

I canít wait till then

My friends will say proudly

I knew her when!
