But please don't make me come to the theatre it's so uncool

I'll babysit my cousin and I promise not to tease him, oh no
I'll caress his little haircut and do everything to please him, oh
I'll watch him like a hawker and in case a fit should seize him
But please don't make me come to the theatre, it's so grim

 Kevin's a model child
|G5        A5     |D    D6/D5 D6/D5 D
 Always as good as gold
|G5       A5   |D     D6/D5  D6/D5 D
 Kevin is never wild
|G5          A5     |Bmadd2
 Always does as he's told
