Tommy Poppins

Updated on February 8, 2013

Tommy Poppins was a kid

His mother’s song stuck in his head

I’m not like you mom

I can’t sing

I’ve got to get away to think

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

So Tommy ran away that night

With only one thought on his mind

Mommy never understands

She’s always perfect

I never am

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Tommy looked for what to do

And a place to stay in too

He joined the circus and became the best

And went back home to impress

But When He showed his mom she said

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

What an amazing thing you’ve learned

But there’s a problem with what you’ve earned

You act much like a chimp in the zoo

I do not like what it is, you do

As Tommy had grown real depressed

Off he ventured to be the best

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Tommy Poppins aced his tests

He sure did become the best

Became a doctor, a referee

He even knew what’s undersea

He went back home to show his mom

The things he’d learnt while he was gone

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Mom I’ve learnt to be the best

Aren’t you proud I’ve aced my tests

Mommy Poppins was glad to see

All the things Tommy had learnt to be

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

I’m very proud, I hope you see

I was even proud before these things

Tommy questioned mommy Poppins

But I thought you were always perfect

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Mommy Poppins began to say

I was perfect in many ways

Much more perfect than

The light of day

I was not perfect at everything

I just really loved to sing

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Tommy Poppins lowered his head

I thought you were perfect at all of it

Mommy Poppins reassured

No one’s perfect, I guarantee you

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Tommy Poppins tried to say

All those times I ran away

Everything was a mistake?

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Not one bit was a mistake

Mommy Poppins tried to explain

You are the best at many things

Go out and teach the world the same

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

One day you’ll begin to see

The world is better with you, not me

Not everyone’s perfect, Tommy

Like your old mommy

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

I see how I’ve become the best

Now I’ll teach the entire world the rest

Mommy Poppins loved to sing

I had become many things

You don’t have to be the best

Just do your best when there’s a test

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

Tommy Poppins never strayed

From being the best there is today

Who’s to know if you will meet

Tommy Poppins on the street

*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*()*

He’s always looking for the best

For those who know, he does not rest

Those of you who pass his test

Shall find you live beyond the rest

Remember Tommy Poppins.
