As a Matter of Fact

(Inspired by Dr. Seuss)

As a matter of fact

I usually have tact

But today’s not the day

to pretend or to play

I’ll yell like a bell

I’ll shout and I’ll pout

I have to be me

as free as can be

So don’t hold me down

And don’t make me frown

Just let me be me

And we’ll all be happy!
