Father’s Valentine

by Jack Prelutsky

I’m working on a valentine,
my very special own design,
a heart to give my Dad tonight…
(it’s quite a chore to get it right).

The first time that I cut it out,
one side was thin, the other stout…
And so I tried to fix it, but,
I made an error when I cut.

I wasn’t careful, though I tried,
and overcut the other side…
Just one more snip should do it, then….
Whoops! I cut too much again!

A snip off here, a snip off there,
and maybe just another hair….
It’s finally done, but understand,
it’s somewhat smaller than I’d planned.

It’s not much bigger than a bean…
the tiniest heart I’d ever seen.
I guess I’ll give it to him now…
I bet he likes it anyhow!

Tortillitas

Tortillitas, tortillitas
Tortillitas para mama
Tortillitas para papa.
Las quemaditas para mamá;
Las bonitas pará papá

Tortillitas, tortillitas
Tortillitas para papa
Tortillitas para mama;
Tortillitas de salvado
Para papa cuando está enojado;
Tortillitas de manteca
Para mama que está contenta.

.en translation

“Tiny Tortillas”

Tiny tortillas, tiny tortillas
Tiny tortillas for mommy;
Tiny tortillas for daddy.
The brown ones for mommy;
The pretty ones for daddy.

Tiny tortillas, tiny tortillas
Tiny tortillas for daddy;
Tiny tortillas for mommy.
Bran tortillas
For daddy when he is mad;
Butter tortillas
For mommy when she is glad.

You Two

from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Caractacus:
Do you think I’m a lunatic? Wasting my time on a lot of silly inventions?

Jemima:
But they aren’t silly–they’re wonderful!

Jeremy:
Nobody else could think of them!

Caractacus:
That’s right! That is right–nobody else could think of
them!–yeah–after all…
What makes the battle worth the fighting?
What makes the mountain worth the climb?
What makes the questions worth the asking?
The reason worth the rhyme?

Caractacus:
To me the answer’s clear;
it’s having someone near; someone dear
Someone to care for; to be there for.
I have You Two!
Someone to do for; muddle through for.
I have You Two!
Someone to share joy or despair with;
whichever betides you.
Life becomes a chore, unless you’re living for
someone to tend to be a friend to.
I have You Two!
Someone to strive for, do or die for
I have You Two!
Could be, we three get along so famously,
’cause you two have me, and I have You Two too.

(Breakfast is behind made, then Caractacus sneezes)

Kids:
Someone to care for; to be there for.

Caractacus:
I have You Two!

Kids:
Someone to do for; muddle through for

Caractacus:
I have You Two!
Someone to smile once in awhile with;
whenever you’re lonesome
I’ve a happy lot,
considering what I’ve got.
But, I couldn’t do more
Than you do for your poor Father.

(Kids: Daddy!)

Things go asunder
and I wonder why you bother.

All:
Could be, we three get along so famously
’cause

Kids:
we two have you,

Caractacus:
and I have You Two

All:
too
