Tomboys Have More Fun

Tomboys love to climb trees.
They usually end up with dirty knees.
They enjoy fishing and bait their own
hook.
They find it more fun than learning
to cook.

Tomboys aren’t afraid to work and
get dirty.
They don’t care much about looking purty.
A tomboy hates to wear a dress.
In blue jeans and T-shirt they are
usually a mess.
Tomboys have lots of fun.
I should know, I was one and still
am one.
