TIME OUT!

©2017  Lisa Brockwell

(acceptance, care, co-operation, responsibility, tolerance, self worth)

 I’ll take time out, I’ll take time out

When I feeling angry, when I feeling angry

I’ll take time out, I’ll take time out

When I can’t get my way, when I can’t get my way

 

CHORUS:

Time out, means letting go

Time out, means walking away

Time out means taking a breath   pause

Then I’ll shake my yukkie’s away!

Then I’ll shake my yukkie’s away!

Time out just to be still

Time out to feel my peace

Time out to feel okay         pause

Then I’ll go back and play

Then I’ll go back and play  

 

And I’ll take time out, I’ll take time out

When I’m really annoyed! When I’m really annoyed!

I’ll take time out, I’ll take time out

When I want to say hurtful words, when I want to say hurtful words

  

I’ll take time out, I’ll take time out

When I want to do the wrong thing, when I want to do the wrong thing

And I’ll take time out, I’ll take time out

To give myself a hug, to give myself a hug
