Shel Silverstein




The Folks Inside

Inside you, boy,
There’s an old man sleepin’,
Dreamin’, waitin’ for his chance.
Inside you, girl,
There’s an old lady dozin’,
Wantin’ to show you a slower dance.

So keep on playin’,
Keep on runnin’,
Keep on jumpin’, 'til the day
That those old folks
Down inside you
Wake up…and come out to play.
