When a Friend Doesn't Want to Play with You

Miss Elaina didn't want to play with me
And I felt so sad
But then I found something else to do
I'm drawing a dump truck
Look at all the fun things I could do

I'm special, I'm okay
I know we'll play another day
When a friend doesn't want to play with you
You can find something else to do

Prince Wednesday didn't want to play with me
And I felt so bad
But then I found something else to do
I'm building the biggest castle
Now I'm no longer feeling blue

I'm special, I'm okay
I know we'll play another day
When a friend doesn't want to play with you
You can find something else to do

Sometimes your friends might not want to play with you
But that's okay, here's some other things you can do
Go on your own adventure and find a bug friend or two
Or curl up with a book and learn something new

When a friend doesn't want to play with you
You can find something else to do

You can dress up like a knight or an astronaut too
Or play some ball or do a craft with some paper and some glue
You can spend some time alone drawing things nearby
Or just lay back and count the clouds up in the sky

When a friend doesn't want to play with you
You can find something else to do
When a friend doesn't want to play with you
You can find something else to do
