JUNGLE GYM

[ Based on a poem in my award-winning children's book,
"Outside The Line: Poetry At Play" (Penguin, 2002) ]
--Brad Burg


CHORUS

When I was little I wanted to climb on the jungle gym,
But I could not climb as high as her, hang on as long as him. (Jungle Gym! Jungle Gym!)
Now I'm bigger, look at me -- now I'm on the jungle gym,
And I can climb as high as her, hang on as long as him. (Jungle Gym! Jungle Gym!)

VERSE 1

Paula's made it to the top;
Tommy's leaning way, way out!
Anne keeps crawlin' round, can't stop . . .
Joe pushed Jeffrey, made him shout!

CHORUS

When I was little I wanted to climb on the jungle gym;
I could not climb as high as her, hang on as long as him.
Now I'm bigger, look at me -- I'm on the jungle gym,
And I can climb as high as her, hang on as long as him.
(Jungle Gym! Jungle Gym!)

VERSE 2

Now Michael's halfway down, but then
Turns 'round to push Joe back again!
Look out! (Look out!) Play nice! (Play nice!)
Don't fall! (Don't fall!) Think twice! (Think twice!)

CHORUS

When I was little I wanted to climb on the jungle gym;
Could not hang on as long as her, climb as high as him.
But look at me now! I'm on the jungle gym! --
And I can hang on as long as her, climb as high as him.
(Jungle Gym! Jungle Gym!)

VERSE 3

Samantha's stretched out low and flat;
And (Look out!) Bobby's almost falling!
Angela has dropped her hat;
And Jennifer's mommy is calling . . .
(Oh, Jennifer . . . Oh, Jennifer . . . )
(Jungle Gym! Jungle Gym!)
