@SONG: I kicked a boy [the Sundays]

when the weather's fine, when it's sunny outside
think about the time I kicked a boy 'til he cried
oh, I could've been wrong, but I don't think I was
he was such a child

when I am alone, I remember so well
how merrily I tripped a boy so he fell
and I could've been wrong, but I don't think I was
he was totally wild

and I've been wondering lately
just who's gonna save me

now I have a cold, and no story to tell
and I'd marry you but I'm so unwell
and although I could've been wrong
well I don't think I was
he was totally wild

and I've been wondering lately
just who's gonna save me
you just should've been [warned/wise]
[oh/our] hysterical child
where'd you learn to do that
