Tic Tac Toe

Alphabe-Thursday letter T challenge…My daughter sings the song

Tic Tac Toe

Once upon a playground

we were happy-go-round

Time for me to grow up..

Never

La la la la-la…

Tic-tac-toe treasures,

My heart’s a skipping stone.

Playing at love is like a

Drippy ice cream cone.

We can compete with just Xs and Os. cause

Whenever we play, there is never a loser.

Oh, rules for you,

you play like tic-tac-toe.

We steal a kiss or two, and then I fall for you.

Tic-tac-toe treasures

You’re captured in my mind.

Hopscotch and monkey bar

Rules are redefined.

You are my treasure. But not for me to hold.

We simply play this game.

My love, it goes untold.

Rules for you,

you play like tic-tac-toe.

We steal a kiss or two and then I fall for you.

Once upon a playground

we were happy-go-round

Time for me to grow up..

Never

Refrain

Tic tac toe, I fall for you

Playground rules just won’t do.

Our friendship will remain true

But you haven’t got  a clue.

Rules for you,

you play like tic-tac-toe.

We steal a kiss or two and then I fall for you.

Tic-tac-toe treasure

A kiss is good as gold

You are  a marvel when you

Line all your Os in rows.

I cannot wait till we make new rules again.

Boomerang pleasures we could catch

Because we’re friends

Oh rules for you,

you play like tic-tac-toe.

We  steal a kiss or two and then I fall for you.

Refrain (2X)

Tic Tac Toe, childhood wishes go

Tic Tac Toe, hugs and kisses oh,

Tic Tac Toe, all Xs and Os

Tic Tac Toe!
