My neighbor has a son named Eddy
Eddy’s funny and a light-hearted kid,
He wanted to stay up late for the New Year’s celebrations.
As night drew on,
and as the hour to celebrate beckoned closer,
I went over to Eddy’s house
to usher in the New Year,
and to see how he was doing,
and as I entered the living room,
I found little Eddy fast asleep on the couch.
We tried waking him up
but it didn’t matter,
as time had passed
and the world was celebrating.
He was upset later on,
but we laughed,
because I remembered going through the very same thing.
