This kid just won't do it! Never! (What? You'll have to read to find out!)
I can’t. I quit. I won’t. That’s it. I’m done. I’m through. No more.
No chance. I’m gone. Forget it. So long. Goodbye. I’m out the door.
Drop it. Leave it. Not maybe. No, never! Not ever. No way. No how.
You can’t get me, just three foot three to milk that angry cow.
