First Line: I used to have to be so good
Last Line: "that I'm a ""problem child!"
Subject(s): Children; Childhood


I used to have to be so good,
And do as Papa said,
Or else he'd spank me soundly as
He sent me up to bed!

But everything is different now,
Since Mama "studies" me,
And goes to class to learn about
This child "psychology."

She says I must not be "suppressed,"
Which drives poor Papa wild,
But, gosh, it's fun since Mama found
That I'm a "Problem Child!"
