The Way It Must Be Done

For our yearly Easter fun
We use the check list number one
We get the eggs and then we lay them out like so
Number two we color them and dye them
Then we take them out and dry them
And we line them up precisely in a row

Next we stack them and we pack them
Make a list so we can track them
Tie the ribbons, stuff the baskets
When it's done
Then we count them out precisely
and we decorate them nicely
And when all of that is finished we'll have fun

'Cause that's the way it must be done, see
From step one, see
That's how we win
We have to be aware
To start to prepare
To commence, to get ready, to begin
Oh Dear!

Now, shall we get to work
Oh, me first!
Very well, I have all the jobs assigned here on my clipboard
I'll take this one
I'll do the rest

I'll paint this red
No! paint it blue
I'll take this one
No, that's for Pooh
I'll use this brush
That's not for you
I'll tie the bow
That's two
What do you want me to do
You take the sissors and the glue
I thought we'd think of something new
like maybe stripes, Me too!

Oh no! no! no! stop having fun!
We have to systemize, prioritize, coordinate and organize
Or else we'll never ever get this done
We need order, concentration
This situation needs focus, control
We're painting,and drying, and packing, and tieing
Get together, or we'll never reach the goal

I'll paint this red
Paint it orange
Paint it blue
I'll stuff the baskets
I'll write Easter
This situation is out of control
I'll tie the ribbon
Painting, dyeing
I'll write the card
Packing, tieing
We can do it
Nothing to it
Look at us
We're almost through it
I shall stack the eggs
I'll get the ribbons
Your not doing it right
Hold on!!!!awwwwwwwwwwwww!
