There will be some songs from the album free to be you and me. Where the children are free? Play with me come with me. YouTube I see the time has come in when will Hines and Hines take my house. evereve weather Hi, baby. What do you think? I am a loaf of bread could be. Why don't I don't I don't want to fight about it. What are you scared? What's a to switch me? Don't just pull up a baby. I don't know nothing yet. You think you're a girl? I don't know. I might be I think I am I never been anything before I beat small dainty. Yep. Yep. I'm a girl. That's it girl time, please. I think I am. I don't feel like a boy dancer Yourself by what do I look like your bald fellow? So so why are bald girl? Yeah, maybe you're a boy and a girl exactly and you know, why because everyone is born with a clean shave. It's just a girl keep their boys don't I can't wait until tomorrow morning. I am I'm terrified of them. I hate them squeak-squeak-squeak. How about you? And I'm the girl I guess so I am a girl and you're a boy sure looks like cover was that mean I should I know I'm only a baby. Sympathy or hold? 780 you're pretty close friends yourselves that mean you're a pretty you get along with each other really pretty well. Four Sisters. Yeah, sometimes we fight a lot but some other times we play good together and stuff you like playing lots of games like Parcheesi and bingo in Monopoly. We always yeah. Yeah, we play games and staff play we pretend like what you want to be when you grow up then we pretend it. That's what we are, you know, and then like a secretary when we have somebody else to play one of us is a boss when it was the secretary and another person comes in and they tell us that we have to make up some kind of a slogan for some product. And then the secretary of the type it up and stuff and make notes on it. Who's the secretary in who's the Boss? And so a lot of times the games you play are are pretend games of what you're going to do when you grow up. Like whatever college and stuff like that. We live in the dorm. Replay that too, but not too off and we play stuff like that. Everyone we have three people and what would you like to do when you grow up if you thought about that and so I'm not really sure yet. I want to be a singer doctor. Yeah, that's what I was thinking about being a singer and a dancer cuz I think I'm pretty good at that cuz me and Beth always have shows and we danced and sing to the song and we had a group called. What's it called Angel angels and see our friend comes. Glendora cuz her name and luckily. I'm the star of our records. The one our group The Angels dances to the most is the Helen Reddy one and we made up some dances but they hardly have any actions in him. But Beth does most of the action center because she's in front and we're in the back, you know. Right align, that's what we usually do. This song that we started out with was. I am woman with Helen Reddy. And then since it was second on the record, we had peaceful too and the others we haven't really made up dance to So you're really worried about about what you going to do when you get older. I mean, it's just something you think about sometimes or do you worry about it at times like an School? Mrs. Traeger the teacher that we had she said that we should study on what we want to be when we grow up and we had to think about this alot and finally me and Linda and Carlene another friend of ours. We all decided that we'd study on secretaries cuz that's fun. And we had a whole bunch of stuff like that. We had we each made up a poem or Yap home and we wrote it in shorthand. And we told the secretaries doing we went to the school secretary asked her a whole bunch of questions and stuff like that. You think about it much better? Not really sometimes I wonder how I'm going to get my way. I'm going to go my way into being that cuz I don't know where to go or what to do. You have a lot of time though. I think about those things don't just so it's and you change a lot. I mean, you might meet somebody that would show your you might be in a situation where you'd see some kind of work that it's really interesting you do you have do you have people that you look up to now is kind of models of what do you like to be like when you grow up? So I don't really but we have some favorite singers that we like. That's what I want to be mostly a singer and we have some favorite singers. And who's your who's your favorite band? my favorite singer Do you think that grown-ups understand children? Pretty much are there some things that they don't understand about children? some people like say that they like it and ask little kids you're not really little but the third and fourth graders and in the first and second graders spent no younger than that and stuff. We've been starting to take after the high school kids and stuff of how they talk like, they say big in out of sight and some of the grownups really don't like us talking like that. You don't think you misunderstood. Hey, baby, will you be my sister? Will you wear trousers twice as long as I don't care if I'm pretty at all? Jim never gets home. I like what I like and you don't have to change. Hey when we grow up when I've been lady who will you didn't engineer? I have to wear things like perfume and gloves. I can still go to whistle while you still here. Why don't care if I'm pretty and I don't care if you never get to I like what I look like. You're nice small. We don't have to change. When I grow up. And do what I like to do. Like making noise making faces and making friends like you. I'm still like you and you still like me. But we don't have to change a tire.
