Henry Kelly climbed to the top of the tree
He was only four or five
He took his big wheel to the top of the tree and tried to take a ride
Henry Kelly fell and screamed like hell as his body bounced off the branches
He fell from the top of the tree to the ground and there wasn't a tooth left in his mouth when he landed

And the grown ups said "Oh Henry, Henry Kelly don't you see you could have died?"
But the kids said "Henry Kelly you're our hero
You can't tell if somethings possible if you don't try"

Henry Kelly waited for his big teethe to grow in
Then he grew up and he is fine
And unless you've heard the story told you might not even notice that he has a crooked smile
So all you kids with over protective parents now listen here to me
Go out and try stuff, get dirty, get hurt, don't be so scared of everything

And the grown ups said "Oh Henry Henry Kelly don't you see you could have died?"
But the kids said "Henry Kelly you're our hero
Can't tell if somethings possible if you don't try"

Kids need to see that kids can be kids and maybe get hurt sometimes
They might break some bones or lose some teeth but they hardly ever die
I hope that legends still get passed from kid to kid these days
About the crazy stunts tried by other kids both long ago and far away

Like the one about girl that made a plastic parachute
Jumped off the roof and broke her knees
Or how Gerald McGuire lost one of his balls when he flipped his A TV

Or how Henry Kelly climbed to the top of the tree
He was only four or five
He took his big wheel to the top of the tree and tired to take a ride
He took his big wheel to the top of the tree and tried to take a ride
