|I revel in days of abiding great joy
Bestowed upon me by that one little boy
Well it's true that it smarts when he shouts in my ears
But the silence hurt nore before he was here
Well he laughs til he cries as we flail on the floor
And he pleads with me "Stop!"
tought he knows there'll be more
With an innocent whimsy he hasn't lost yet
Then he leads me ti wimsy I'll never forget
When he says "Now dady, you tickle yourself"
And I says "If I could I'd get ti it
But it only tickles when you do it"
Now That my bonnie boy has grown inte a man
I am left all alone here with these idle hands
So they reach up to You who've been Father to me
And they're craving the joy that Your touch always means
A say this in not the most reverent terms
And pray You won't misconstrue it
But it only tickles when you do it
....and when the Lord speaks.... :
"I am God, I am happy in heavens above
I've had eons and ages of Myself to love
Still I found it amsuing to see Adam come
And the earth did seem greener, and brighter the sun
Well I may try to hide this from even Myself
But clearly you always knew it
That it only tickles when you do it
Yes it only tickles when you do it"
