Every year it's always the same
"Never again!" I swear
Perhaps someone different but someone to blame
Why do I bother to care?
I just want to have a little memento
Of our happy family days
But taking the picture brings me such torment-oh!
It puts me right into a craze!
First the weather looks fine with the sun in the sky
Then suddenly it starts to rain
As soon as it clears and we've all gotten dry
The little one's shirt has a stain!
Then there's the wiggly, fidgety ones
The ones who will never sit still
As soon as one sits down, another one runs
These brats are a test of my will.
And you just must see the facial contortions
That I have to view through my lens
Silly behavior beyond all proportions
And two of them baring rear ends!
A nice family photo is all that I seek
A picture of those I hold dear
But all that I have is frustration and pique
Perhaps I'll have more luck next year!
