I've been watching you tie your new shoes.
It gives me the blues, observing you.
Grey with a white letter on the side.
They look so nice, will you teach my twice?

I fell and bumped my knee on the floor.
At the top of the stairs, you found me there.
Gracefully you put left over right.
Then you pull them tight, you show me again.

Bunny ears and you wrap it around.
With barely a sound, except son that's not right.
You've tied them too tight, so try it again.
Try it again.

You said "It's all good and fine."
You will learn it with time.
It's just you're young and naive.
You know not what you will see.
