Peek a Boo

by Baba Bomani



Verse 1
Peek-a-boo I see you over there/
with your bib in your mouth and your food in your hair./
I’d tell you to stop but you’d take it as a dare./
You're one year old, so who really cares?/
You've got valuables to ruin, toys to break,/
toilets to put my shoes in, and noise to make./
You've got places to crawl, make fake phone calls,/
finger-prints to put on walls, while you're playing basketball./
While you're pulling out pots and pans/
one thing makes you forget your plans./
When my silly face emerges from out my hands,?
"PRESTO" Daddy's the world's funniest man./
I'll do anything for you child/ to see that four tooth smile./
To make you laugh give you more of the same/
that's why I love playing this game./

Chorus (2X)
"Peek-a-boo", why is this the greatest game ever?/
I think you're so beautiful, you think I'm so clever./
The only thing better than finding what makes your world spin,/
Is every day finding it all over again./

Verse 2
Peek-a-boo, I see you over there/
with my glasses in your hand while you're banging on the chair./
You took them off the table when I was unaware/
but you're so darn cut that it isn't even fair./
That's why I hang on every word you speak/
and brag about you to every person that I meet./
I'm astounded by how much you grow every week./
Can't wait 'till you graduate to hide and seek./
When I go 'cause I've got things to do/
you cry your eyes out 'cause you think I'm leaving you./
But when I'm gone, all I do is think of you/
I tell you it's a long game of "Peek-a- boo"./
I realize you want to be me/
but I'm sure you'll exceed me./
Child believe me,/
I'll try to be a better man every time you see me.

Chorus (2X)
