And so I look on, wondering and in a daze
Dazzled by your presence which I think is so enchanting
Forgive me if I may not be paying attention
My mind is still trying to grasp the reality of you
I hold on to myself, making sure I still am grounded
For I know once I float away
I will be falling
I took notice and am hoping you will too
The sound of your name as I call it
Is music to my ears
I always seem to have a jar full of hope
In the end it gets broken
Still, here I am in a daze and dazzled by you
The girl who stole the cookie jar took hold of the chocolates too.
The candies, the pastries and the cola coated cakes
have been taken as well.
The doughnuts have been held hostage,
the eggs, spam, ham and the sausages…..
…have all gone, with the wind.
Alas! The honey bread, the jellybean, have been taken too.
Oh that girl! That mischievous girl!
She’ll be stealing more cookie jars once I’m done baking
I did not take it, I swear
You can check my pockets
My hands, even behind my ears
You can check under the table or the light sockets
I did not take it, I tell you
You can check under the stairs
Or even on my bed
Try near the chairs
Or even the shed
You won’t see it on me ’cause I didn’t take it
I did not take the cookie from the cookie jar
I swear, cross my heart
I found it on the plate
And now it’s in my stomach
