This little girl just couldn't skate

Her mind just couldn't picture

Her mom had failed so it was her

the one to make them richer

The girl who lost the warmth between

those thick layers of ice

forgot the playground and her friends

She lost them to her vice

So luck wore different colors on

the day she "broke a leg"

the cast she had was lighter than

the life her mom did beg

Don't try to mold me anymore

just stop there for my sake

If I can't bend beyond this point

It means I'll simply break

This little boy just couldn't throw

His mind just couldn't picture

Sadly his father as a coach

wanted a starting pitcher

He said the boy had a strong arm

He just needed some grips

Coincidently when he stopped

playing he broke some ribs

I wouldn't break the door to life

I'll try to find some spare keys

As for the boy if you might ask

He's playing for the Yankees
