Decennial Song

(To the tune of "Annie's Song (You Fill Up My Senses)" by John Denver)

You fill out the census
Though you live in the forest.
List the folks in your household.
Use a blue or black pen.
Mention everyone's races
(Even those who are hybrid.)
Just fill out the census
Or we'll come here again.

Don't list people in prison
Or your nursing home family.
Don't list children in college
Or off serving in arms.
There is space for six folks here,
So list those living with you.
If you do it right this year
We won't see you for ten.
