when i was a kid growing up
out on a farm in the country
what we knew was what we saw around us
we didnt have tv in those days
the old folks never asked us things like
what do you want to be when youre grown up
we just did the best we could, you know.
we didnt have options like kids today.
my friends grew up and got married
had farms like their parents before them
some had skills like mechanical or electrics
that gave them more options if they chose
but the girls, got married and had kids
worked beside their husbands as a team
maybe a teacher or baker or shopkeeper
but that was the way it was then.
one time my parents went on a little trip
to a city to see some of the sights
they stayed at hotels, and went to the bar
and someone was there to entertain.
when my parents came home, all they talked about
was how nice the people were there
they came out and served them food, and drinks
and that lady who told jokes was the best
so from that time on, all i thought about
how my parents thought that was the best
my secret ambition was to make people happy
by being a hotel cocktail waitress
