Margaret goes to bed around eight

I go to bed around one

Margaret gets up at six

I get up at six

Four days a week and you’re a family

Four days a week, fortunes

Oh Margaret

Margaret is willing to share her food

Share her thick brown hair

Margaret is willing to share her toys

Share her deep brown eyes

Repeat Chorus

Sundown and the clouds cover up the stars

One down, but before she closes her eyes

It all comes out; she speaks all the words she knows

Her lungs so small

Her breath so warm

Repeat First Verse and Chorus
