The Preschool Song


Brussels, Belgium

To make it easier to say goodbye in the morning, Marieke Slovin and her father would wave to each other through the windows of the preschool building.


Was is morning or afternoon
Preschool was a building
Partially underground
I would fall into despair
I had tears streaming down my face
Narrow windows
My dad would peer through
I would look through streaming tears

He would wave, I would wave

I would grow despondent
It was when he left
He would go to the next window

He would wave, I would wave

This would go and on
This would go and on

He would wave, I would wave
