Heathers- The Musical - Kingergarten Boyfriend (lyrics)


There was a boy I met in kindergarten
He was sweet
He said that I was smart
He was good at sports and people liked him
And at nap time once we shared a mat
I didn’t sleep
I sat and watched him breathing
Watched him dream for nearly half an hour
Then he woke up

He pulled a scab off one time playing kickball
Kissed me quick and pressed it in my hand
I took that scab and put it in a locket
All year long I wore it near my heart
He didn’t care if I was thin or pretty
And he was mine until we hit first grade
Then he woke up

Last night I dreamed a horse with wings
Flew down into my homeroom
On its back there he sat
And he held out his arms
So we sailed above the gym
Across the faculty parking lot
My kindergarten boyfriend and I
And a horse with wings

Now we’re all grown up and we know better
Now we recognize the way things are
Certain boys are just for kindergarten
Certain girls are meant to be alone

But I believe that any dream worth having
Is a dream that should not have to end
So I’ll build a dream that I can live in
And this time I’m never waking up

And we’ll soar above the trees
Over cars and croquet lawns
Past the church and the lake
And the tri-county mall
We will fly through the dawn
To a new kindergarten
Where nap time is centuries long
Ooooooh, oooooh, oooooooh, oooh
