Playing Grown Up
Happy B'day Ellie


Time flies... Happy Birthday to my sweet Ellie. For
ALL the smiles you give me daily. For the sweet lil'
lady you are becoming. I see so much of your mommy
in you. I celebrate this day but don't wish to rush
on to the next. Don't try to grow up too quickly...

Carly Simon "Grownup lyrics"

I stood in the doorway in my white nightgown
Red roses on cotton, I stood three feet from the ground
The grownups inside used words I didn't know
But still I enjoyed the show

They looked so lovely, they looked so self-assured
And I just like them would know it all when I matured
And I wouldn't be afraid of the darkness or the bears
Or the cracks in the ceiling upstairs

Now I've just gotten older, I've just gotten taller
And the little ones, they call me a grownup

Lat night at a friend's house a little girl was there
She stood in the doorway playing with her hair
She looked up to me as if I could do no wrong
As I got up to sing my song

I sang it with a shiver in my throat and in my knees
Feeling just as small as a thistle in a breeze
But the child's imagination carried me along
And saw me through my song

Now I've just gotten older, I've just gotten taller
And the little ones call me a grownup
