I’m going Home

Don’t cry for me I’m not alone

I’m going home to see the others

That left before me, the sister and brothers

I’m going home I’ll be there for Christmas

So you be happy and don’t you miss us.

I was just too tired to stay any more

My mind was tired, my body sore

I’ll be just fine you can tell everybody

I can jump and run with this new body

I know you’ll miss me teasing you so.

So blush once more before I go.

Please do this for me if you possibly can

Take good care of your self ’til we meet again
