hooray for our amelia
stays home to take care of the babies
while her mother is at work
she's 12 now, going on 13
pretends she doesn't see the neighbors shake their heads
they will say:

"you ought to be in school
you ought to be at play
you ought to be with other children
nearer to your age,"

she puts the twins to sleep
and sits down to her dream
she's amelia of the camelot
the prince is on his way

she knows what she is missing
but she reads a lot
to catch up with the girl down the street
the laundry, the dinner, the dishes and some things
she is well ahead of the game

"you ought to be in school, amelia
you ought to be at play, amelia
you ought to be with other children
nearer to your age,"

she's Amelia of the stars
amelia of the moon
she's Amelia of the camelot
she's all of them today

amelia of the stage
amelia of the stars
she's amelia of the camelot
raised on planet mars

three cheers for our star
hip, hip and hooray
amelia of the kitchen
and the nursery
