Little boys, little games

The lines are drawn on paper

If you cross, where's the blame?

We can work it out later


Little girls, little boys

The lines are drawn so lightly

They can all learn to enjoy

Either daily or nightly


And it's all made clear in the light of day

But the night will stay full of landmines

So they keep a bit, and they give away

There's a world they say

Outside the lines


Little words, little phrase

The lines are drawn discreetly

What it means, what it says

Can't understand it completely


Little highs, big lows

The lines are disappearing

It feels good, take it slow

There's nothing interfering




Little boys, big games

The lines are drawn on mirrors

And if you cross, who's to say

That things will soon seem clearer?
