about

A lighthearted recollection of childhood.

lyrics

Chalk, chalk, chalk and Crayola both are tamers of my nostalgia.
Macaroni and paper plates have a way of reminding me of better days.
and I plead to anyone don't you remember
I'd beg don't you have a memory
of that first semester?

I make friends that are there for me. "An under dog for you? An under dog, we'll see."
We read books wrote by Doctor Suess, we pack up our things leave a quarter after two...
and I plead to anyone don't you remember
I'd beg don't you have a memory
of that first semester?

On my street there's a sprinkler
we all take our turns sprinting through the water.
The chalk we used has now washed away
we'll draw another picture,
a memory for another day.
