Slow Down Kids

Slow down my babies, there is no need to rush.

Slow down my babies, what is all the fuss?

Slow down my babies, make yourself relax.

Slow down my babies, come and stay a while.
Slow down my babies, let's just have some fun.

Slow down my babies, let's get together and take a breather,

let's kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh a little.

Slow down my babies, you look ever so stressed,

come, sit and snuggle in my arms and rest.

Slow down my babies, those work issues can wait.

Slow down my babies, I know work is a must,

but sometimes babies, it's nice when you think just.

Sit with me a minute, and listen to our hearts,

spend a cherished moment,
'cause your childhood has been lost!
