Zini, me & life in general

Recently this Billy Joel song was playing in the car (That’s the only place i get to hear songs other than Baa Baa Black sheep & Clap your hands) & i realised that most of it is probably written for Zini ;)……..Probably after reading this you may realize that – wait, probably it was written for my child πŸ™‚

Decide for yourself….

She can kill with a smile (Yes, for that smile people fall over each other)
She can wound with her eyes (when tears start coming out of those eyes..)
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies (screaming Potty!!!! just to detach me from the book)
And she only reveals what she wants you to see (Doesn’t she say “Kuch nahi” to my “Kya kar rahe ho?” while doing something mischievous?!)
She hides like a child,
But she’s always a woman to me

She can lead you to love (She does πŸ™‚)
She can take you or leave you (When she is angry, Ohhhh 😦)
She can ask for the truth (And much more like biscuit, toys, push to the cycle, Godi……….)
But she’ll never believe you (Even after saying there are no more biscuits, she says “Hai Hai”)
And she’ll take what you give her, as long as it’s free (Yes Yes Yes, that’s my daughter)

Yeah, she steals like a thief Β (there goes all the hearts πŸ™‚)

But she’s always a woman to me

Oh–she takes care of herself (Oh Yeah, she does)
She can wait if she wants (She has started showing this trait on & off πŸ™‚)
She’s ahead of her time (What to say, she reminds me to turn off the light, fan, water tap & so on)
Oh–and she never gives out
And she never gives in (No she doesn’t, she bosses me around)
She just changes her mind (Very frequently at that)

And she’ll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you (Oh, those nails, i just cut them yesterday)
And laugh while you’re bleedin’
But she’ll bring out the bestΒ And the worst you can be (Well she does that)
Blame it all on yourself (Yeah, i take the responsibility, so should hubby πŸ™‚)
Cause she’s always a woman to me

She is frequently kind (Hmm, shares her things)
And she’s suddenly cruel (Suddenly, stops her friend from taking her favorite toy)
She can do as she pleases (Who can stop her)
She’s nobody’s fool (Nope, she is not)
And she can’t be convicted
She’s earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me
