I CAN WAIT!

© Lisa Brockwell, 2017

(acceptance, respect, responsibility, co operation)

I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait!

Stop! I can change what I’m thinking.

 

I can wait, I can wait, I can wait, I can wait

I can wait for you and you and you 

I can wait for my turn ’cause it’s easy to do, I can listen to you 

Think of lovely things to say and do

whilst I wait and I wait till it’s time to move,

till it’s time to talk or it’s time to walk.
I can wait, I can wait, I can wait, I can wait

Of course I can wait, I’m so glad I can wait 

I CAN WAIT!
