Shouldn't have done that

Plans made in the nursery
Can change the course of history
Remember that
Mummy's annoyed, says go and play
Don't show your face
Stay away all day
Shouldn't have done that
A small boy and his infantry
Marching around so naturally
Shouldn't have done that
Grows up and goes to school
Such a nice boy
Obeys all the rules
Mummy's proud of that
Leaves school to follow his ambition
Knows what he wants
To be a politician
Shouldn't have done that!
