If You Have A Kid Who Complains All The Time

by Barry Louis Polisar

If you have a kid who complains all the time,
Hollers and pouts and cries and whines,
Screams and stomps his feet all day;
Don't be angry, give him away.
Don't be angry, give him away.

Follow my advice and you will see,
Things will be better than you'd ever believe;
You don't have to worry when he's immature,
Who needs understanding, this works for sure.
Who needs understanding, this works for sure.

If your little brother isn't very good
And won't do a thing that a good boy should,
I've got a thing that'll set that right:
Lock him in a box and he's outta sight,
Lock him in a box and he's outta sight.

If you have a sister who's a nasty brat,
Don't tell her little girls shouldn't act like that.
My method is simple to understand:
Package her securely and ship her to Iran,
Package her securely and ship her to Iran.
