THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Please Don't Think It's Funny

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1968, Fred M. Rogers


Sometimes you feel like holding your pillow all night long;
Sometimes you hug your teddy bear tightly,
He's old but he's still strong.
And sometimes you want to snuggle up closely with your own Mom and Dad
At night, you even need the light sometimes,
But that's not bad.

Please don't think it's funny,
When you want an extra kiss.
There are lots and lots of people
Who sometimes feel like this.

Please don't think it's funny
When you want the ones you miss.
There are lots and lots of people
Who sometimes feel like this.

It's great to know you're growing up bigger every day,
But somehow things you like to remember
Are often put away.
And sometimes you wonder over and over
If you should stay inside,
When you enjoy a younger toy...
You never need to hide.

In the long, long trip of growing
There are stops along the way,
For thoughts of all the soft things
And the look of yesterday.

For a chance to fill our feelings,
With comfort and with ease,
And then tell the new tomorrow,
"You can come now when you please."

So please don't think it's funny,
When you want an extra kiss.
There are lots and lots of people
Who sometimes feel like this.

Please don't think it's funny
When you want the ones you miss.
There are lots and lots of people
Who sometimes feel like this.
