A Place of My Own (Song)

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1970, Fred M. Rogers

I like to have a place of my own
A place where I can be by myself
When I want to think and play by myself.
I like to have a place of my own.

I like to have a place of my own
A step on a staircase, a drawer or a chair
A corner, a spot anywhere
A place I can call my own.

Dishes have places;
So do pots and pans,
Beds and bathtubs,
Shoes and socks.
Tables have places;
So do faces and hands.
Houses have places;
Keys have locks,
I like to have a place of my own.

I like to have a place of my own
A place where I can be by myself.
When I want to play and think by myself.
I like to have a place of my own.


Notes

The titles A Place of My Own and A Place of Our Own seem to be interchangable.
