"Jessica? Shelby? Elisa?" Cut it out you guys!" The girls always hide from him We always hear his cries Poor Adam has no brothers
The girls don't like to sit with him "Eeeeew, he is such a boy!" He sits alone all the time Just playing with a toy Poor Adam has no brothers
Birthday parties and sleepovers The girls they have friends stop by They never want to play with him And again, we hear him cry Poor Adam has no brothers
Dinner time is no different They all scramble for a seat Of course poor Adam is left out again While the girls all talk so sweet Poor Adam has no brothers
No one to play catch with The girls don't seem to care They all go into Jessica's room And do each other's hair Poor Adam has no brothers
"Enough of this!" he thinks out loud" "There has got to be a way" To make the girls start liking me And invite me to join their play." Poor Adam has no brothers
This idea of playing together Much easier said than done What could he say? What could he do? To get to join the fun Poor Adam has nobrothers
He sat and thought, then thought some more An idea he could not find Then all at once he had a plan Something finally came to mind Poor Adam has no brothers
The girls don't seem to care about The things I like to do So maybe I should take a chance And wear the other shoe Poor Adam has no brothers
He suggested to the girls "Let's all sit down and play You pick what we play right now And I get to choose the next day Poor Adam has no brothers
Drinking tea from a little cup It's not so bad I guess In fact it was rather fun for him Even cleaning up the mess Poor Adam has no brothers
Now, when it came to playing ball The girls, at least they tried Half the fun was when they missed the ball None of the girls even cried Poor Adam has no brothers
So, yes it's true, it is a fact That Adam has no brothers But now a days That's all okay Because Adam has lots of others
