You say

To focus on homework

And not let my mind go astray

You ask

Are you online with friends

If you are, get off now – back to work

Have you thought

That maybe, just maybe

It's better when I have time to relax

That if I spent more time with friends

Any time with friends

And less on homework

My health would improve

Is it true?

I don't know

But it sounds pretty plausible to me

Let me be

I know me

Yes I know how to get my homework done

Will you please just stop?

You're driving me mad

And I don't know how to tell you

I love you, but just leave me alone
