Dress up days FOR KIDS I don't mean the times They dressed up for Church Or for special holidays But the times they found A long dress in their moms closet, And their moms high heel shoes Oh and the hats they found In a hat box in the closet. Please mom, please.... They were in seventh Heaven... And the special box In a best friends basement, Filled with formals And a box of high heels. That insured them a great Play day... I grew up in Dress up days My girls grew up in Dress up days But this day and age It seems there are Dress up days Filled with Princesses Bought at Target Or on Amazon. Stealing the creative ability of a child. They are expensive, beautiful And they sparkle I'm sure the little girls Probably get more excited Over Princess dresses That sparkle Then the ones that hang Over their shoulders And drag on the ground. Either way, they can still Have fun while singing "I'm so fancy"
