Buckle Down

I climb in my booster seat
All ready to go.
When Dad says, "Buckle up!"
I must say, "No."

Dad asks, "Why?"
I answer, "But it's down."
Dad doesn't understand -
He just frowns.

I point to my seatbelt
And the place where it clicks.
"You should say, 'Buckle down!', Daddy,"
I say with a *click*.
