Stay Up Late



Stay Up Late By Maira Kalman

Little Creatures by Talking Heads

Mommy had. A little baby.
There he is. Fast asleep.
He’s just. A little plaything.
Why not. Wake him up?
Cute. Cute. Little baby.
Little pee pee. Little toes.
Now he’s comin’ to me.
Crawl across. The kitchen floor.

Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I want to make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he’s just a plaything
We want to make him stay up all night
Yeah we do

See him drink. From a bottle.
See him eat. From a plate.
Cute. Cute. As a button.
Don’t you want to make him. Stay up late.
And we’re having fun. With no money.
Little smile. On his face.
Don’t cha’ love. The little baby.
Don’t you want to make him. Stay up late.

[Chorus:]

Here we go (all night long)
Sister, sister (all night long)
In the playpen…woo…(all night long)
Little baby goes, ha! (all night long)
I know you want to leave me…

Why don’t. We pretend.
There you go. Little man.
Cute. Cute. Why not?
Late at night. Wake him up.

[Chorus]

Here we go (all night long)
Sister, sister…woo…
(with the television on)
Little baby goes…woo! (all night long)
Hey, hey, baby! (all night long)
And he looks so cute (all night long)
In his little red suit (all night long)

Crammed with interesting and accurate information about these great natural wonders, Jason Chin’s first book is innovative nonfiction set within a strong and beautiful picture storybook.

Demain c’est toi

By ZAZ

Je trace des chemins qui n’attendent que toi
À toi l’enfant qui vient, je précède tes pas
Je murmure ton nom dans le souffle de ma voix
Je t’offrirai le monde, toi que je ne connais pas
Je t’ouvre grand mon cœur comme on ouvre ses mains
Je t’espère des bonheurs aussi grands que les miens

Demain c’est toi

J’apprends les alphabets de chacun de tes gestes
Je te chante mes rêves d’espaces et de Far West
Je veux pour toi l’amour, le rare et le précieux
Toute la beauté du monde à portée de tes yeux
Les poings chauffés à blanc, je forge pour demain
Tes bonheurs que je souhaite aussi grands que les miens

Demain c’est toi

Je te donne les clés qui ouvrent tous les coffres
Je pulvérise les murs des prisons que l’on t’offre
Je cours à l’infini pour ne pas te laisser
Tout c’que je n’t’ai pas dit c’est parce que tu le sais
C’est parce que tu le sais
À toi l’enfant qui vient comme un petit matin
Je t’espère des bonheurs aussi grands que les miens

Demain c’est toi
