Mother reads the paper,
meanwhile Mary climbs the stairs.

Sister rides her bike,
meanwhile Mary plays with flares.

Father’s at the store,
meanwhile Mary has the phone.

In the tank the fish are swimming,
meanwhile Mary dials Rome.

While Mary never says it,
We’re pretty sure that she means well,

Even if when no one’s looking,
It seems she’s always raising – “Hell-hello?….Roma?”
