When I was a boy
I was full of dreams
Some would come in time
A little further downstream

But there was one which never
Ever would come true
For all the tea in China
No A, E, I, O, U

A N T I D I S E
S T A B L I S H M E N T
A R I A N I S M
This boy wasn’t meant to win the spelling bee

Well I took some piano lessons
I went to soccer practice
My family got a cat
And a hamster and a rabbit

Lots of opportunities
Gifts and grace of various kinds
But even though I studied
Couldn’t make that trophy mine
