"Hope That’s the End of It"

© 2007 Eve & Mare



Well little brother Timmy had a blanket

He carried it around from year to year

Every time we saw it, it was a little more worn and a little bit smaller

It was something Timmy held so dear


But yesterday he turned a corner

Woke up and he saw the light

He threw away that ragged blanket

Without a struggle or a fight


And we hope that’s the end of it

Hope that’s the end of it

we hope that’s the end of it

It was time for that thing to go


Well what can you say about brother Timmy

He’s always been the sentimental kind

He fished that dirty blanket from the trashcan in the backyard

It was underneath a stinky pile of slime


We thought that he had turned a corner

Apparently it wasn’t true

But that old blanket smelled so bad

He threw it down the laundry chute


And we hope that’s the end of it

Hope that’s the end of it

we hope that’s the end of it

It was time for that thing to go


Well the blanket met its maker in the lint trap

I guess we washed it one too many times

But Timmy didn’t cry, he didn’t even come unraveled

He just turned around and looked us in the eye


He said “Think I might have turned a corner

Finally I have seen the light

It’s alright to let things go now

It’s okay to say goodbye


And we hope that’s the end of it

Hope that’s the end of it

we hope that’s the end of it

It was time for that thing to go
