Just One More

My little girl has her play today
She looks so cute in her little green leotard
Yesterday she was clamoring on
"Daddy you're going to be there right? Right Dad?"

I'm ready to go
Just going to have a quick beer with my lunch

I can't wait to watch her dance around on that stage
She even has two lines
I have heard her practice them each day
"I'll get the door. Fly away Birdy"

Finished my lunch
Just going to have a quick beer while I digest

I don't know what the play is
I'm sure she told me
Just yesterday she was saying
"Daddy I'm going to be the...

Where are my keys
I'll just have another beer while I find my keys

Did she say the play started at 2 or 2:30?
I know it's written down here somewhere
When I took her to school she said
"Daddy make sure to be 10 minutes early, so you can find a seat."

Maybe the keys are in the fridge
There�s beer in the fridge, another beer for me.
