The Top

spinning, spinning round and round
tippy toes pattering on the ground
hands outstretched with fingers flared
tresses flying through the air

tippy toes pattering on the ground
sunlight bouncing all around
tresses flying through the air
carefree smiles while mother is there

sunlight bouncing all around
teetering toddler falls to the ground
carefree smiles while mother is there
stand back up, spin through the air

teetering toddler falls to the ground
mother swoops in, her arms wrap around
stand back up, spin through the air
enveloped in love, a picturesque pair

mother swoops in, her arms wrap around
words of adoration lovingly abound
enveloped in love, a picturesque pair
the two rise together and spin through the air

words of adoration lovingly abound
hands joined together, they twirl round and round
the two rise together and spin through the air
carefree smiles while mother is there
