You’re Wet!

Hey Mommy, Daddy
Hey who’s that?
I see a stinky baby,
I pinch to see if it is real
Oh yes – it cries
It’s crazy.

Why are all these grownups here?
Why do they crowd around him?
They kiss and hold and show their love
To this gremlin they call Tim.

I was the baby yesterday
He’s come to steal my place I bet,
I hate the very sight of him
So I point and shout “You’re Wet!”

Why do they all laugh at me
It’s not cute what I’ve said,
My mommy says, “You know, he’s right”
Then sends me off to bed!
