Can I Have Some Peace and Quiet?

Sung to the tune of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" from the movie, Frozen.

Me: 
Kids? 

(Knock, knock, knocking my hand against the table)

Can I have some peace and quiet?
Come on, please go and play.
I always see you near my door,
Or on the floor
It’s like you’ve never gone away!

It used to be so quiet,
but now it’s not.
I wish you would tell me why!

Can I have some peace and quiet?
It doesn’t have to be too quiet.

Kids: 
No way, Mommy!

Me: 
Please just fly!

(Knock, knock, knocking my hand against the table, again)

Can I have some peace and quiet?
Or at least a slice of pie?
I think your company is overdue
To leave don’t you?
What am I
Talking to the sky?
(Hang in there, Chris)
It never gets too lonely
All these cluttered rooms
Just watching the fights ensue…
(crash-boom, crash-boom, crash-boom, crash-boom)

Orchestral (during which I inhale through my nose and exhale via my mouth. At least twice.)

Me:
(Knocking)
Kids?
Please, I know you hear me!
People are asking you to play.
They say, “Can they come out?” and I want you to,
I’ll still be here for you,
Just please go play!

You always have each other,
Or at least the Wii.
What are you gonna do?

Can I have some peace and quiet?
