Didi

Didi left the house this morning
wondering to himself, who would tie his shoes?
And he left alone because he
had to finish up all his orange juice.

Didi, you've been following, I didn't want you here.
Didi, couldn't you find another sister to be near?

Cause I get sick of hearing, "Zeizei, let Didi play with you..."
And I tire of saying, "My Didi wants to come too."

Didi made an "accident" in class,
so the nurse sent him home, snickered the recess crowd.
They saw him crying beside a Safeway paper bag,
decked in overalls from the lost and found.

Didi, you've been in the bath all this time.
Didi, come out, you can't soak there all night.
Don't little raisin fingers need to dry?

Didi, someday you will be a hero
in the movies, fighting those
crooked thieves with your sheriff's badge and gun...
Didi, one day you will be a picture
taped to all the girls' mirrors.
They'll say, who now could have ever figured
you'd finally become someone?

Didi dear, I'm sorry that I yelled at you that way.
Didi dear, I know today just wasn't your day.

And now I think all I want is my Didi well by tomorrow,
and there are things I hope my Didi will never know.

Yes, and now I think all I want is my Didi well by tomorrow,
and there are things I hope Didi will never have to know.
