REFUGEES (continued)

(There I'll be trained)
To be a dietician
(To be a dietician?)
And all your life
(And all my life)
You will eat chicken
(A la king, a la king)
(But--I'm only five)
You qualify
(I'm only two)
We count on you
(I'm only one)
You're never too young
(But I'm not born)
Fill out this form fill out this form
And if you wake in the middle of the night
With that old desire to start fires
We'll send you to
(You'll send me to)
A special school
(A special school)
For children who are twisted

All: And what will become of Natty Nan?

Oh God if you are aware of my prayer
Perhaps you care
I'm such a mess
But no one knows
I press my dress
I mend my clothes
I have come through a difficult stage untouched
I have been sweet, friendly, sunny, rosy
And my reward for such good conduct
Is no one knows me, no one knows me

All: Be careful....
