who was bringing up 3 very lovely kids
one of them, had hair of gold, like her mother
then she whacked it offff with pinking shears
and sent her mom in to tears
(sung in tune to the brady bunch theme song)
Okay she didn't whack it all off just one side where she thought she needed to have bangs to fit in, peer pressure and all...
