Can I go get it, Mommy?

Can I go get it, Mommy?
I see it through the window
I want it so much, so badly
Can I go get it, Mommy?

The walls of my room
So brightly colored, just for me
The roof of my room
With twinkling stars, just for me

But I don’t want these, Mommy!
Can’t you see what I want?
Can’t you see on what my heart is set?
Can I go get it, Mommy?

Now someone else wants it too, Mommy
It’s so shiny and brilliant
They will take it away from me
Can I please go get it, Mommy?
