I dont think its all that fine,

That our Leah is turning nine.

I dont think its all that great,

So well just keep her at age eight.

 

The problem is, that girls at nine,

Like to fuss and tend to whine.

My hair must be, just so curly.

I must be a pretty girly.

 

I need a dress that looks just so,

Cause Im out to get a beau.

Mommy, let me wear lipstick,

I promise not to wear it thick.

 

So you see this thought of mine.

A girls problems start at nine.

We must act before too late.

Well just keep her at age eight.

 

Put away the birthday cakes.

And in the morning when she wakes,

Just forget the date and time.

No one I know is turning nine.
