Thinking Safety

(Tune: Clementine)

In the kitchen, Dad was cooking,
Frying chicken in some oil.
Said he’d go out to do the shopping,
Just as dinner tried to boil!

Thinking Safety, I remembered,
Told him, “Dad! Turn off the heat!”
Using caution is more important
Than preparing supper meat.

At the table was a candle
Mom had lit to cheer the room.
Matches sitting on the counter
Made me feel a sense of doom.

Thinking Safety, I remembered,
Told her, “Mom, this I must teach,
Keep the matches and the lighters
Out of little sister’s reach!”

In the bedroom, brother studied,
Working oh so diligently,
Stereo, TV, heater, computer,
All plugged in same circuitry.

Thinking Safety, I remembered,
Told him, “Bud, that’s not too wise!
You should unplug some electronics
Before that one connection fries!”

Fire prevention can be easy,
Just have care at every turn.
Use your good sense and some planning
To prevent unwanted burn.
