Preschooler Refrain, or: Why Bedtime Takes So Long at Our House

"I think I'll go out to Alberta. Weather's good there in the fall. Got some friends that I could go to working for."

What friends? What kind of work?

"Still I wish you'd change your mind, if I asked you one more time"

I would totally change my mind.

"But we've been through that a hundred times or more."

We've been through that a hundred and ONE times.

"Four strong winds that blow lonely"

[tearfully] Why are the winds lonely?

"Seven seas that run high"

What are the seven seas? What does "run high" mean?

"All those things that don't change, come what may"

Why don't those things change?

"But our good times, they are gone"

Where did they go?

"And I'm bound for moving on. I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way."

I would look for you and I would find you.
