I WROTE MY MOM A LETTER AND THIS IS WHAT I SAID...

WELLA WELLA WELLA WELLA 

WASHED ALL THE DISHES AND I DID A LOT MORE,

I EVEN BOUGHT THE DINNER AT THE GROCERY STORE.

AND NOW, MOM, YOU`LL FIND THE KEY NEXT DOOR,

THIS LITTLE GIRL`S GONE ROCKIN`.

I LEFT SOME BISCUITS FOR THE PUP,

I PUT FRESH WATER IN HIS CUP.

AND NOW I`M OFF, I`M GONNA LIVE IT UP,

THIS LITTLE GIRL`S GONE ROCKIN`.


WELL, I`LL BE HOME ABOUT TWELVE TONIGHT,

AND NOT A MINUTE MINUTE MINUTE LATER,

DON`T FORGET THE FRONT DOOR LIGHT,

THAT`S ALL FOR NOW, I`LL SEE YOU LATER, MATER.


YOU`LL FIND EACH THING THAT YOU WANTED DONE,

I`M OFF TO MEET THAT SPECIAL ONE.

AND BOY OH BOY WILL WE HAVE FUN,

`CAUSE THIS LITTLE GIRL`S GONE ROCKIN`.
