Shouldn't Have Done That

Plans made in the nursery
Can change the course of history
Remember that

Mommy's annoyed
Says go and play
Don't show your face
Stay away all day
Shouldn't have done that

Small boy and his infantry
Marching around so naturally
Shouldn't have done that

Grows up and goes to school
Such a nice boy, obeys all the rules
Mummy's proud of that

Leaves school
To follow his ambition
Knows what he wants:
To be a politician
Shouldn't have done that
