Being a Kid

Play Song

Performed by Charles W - T Consaul

I see grown-ups every day
Who've forgotten how to play
Dried up and lied up
They really should be tied up
For spreading doom and gloom that way
If they ever knew how to have fun
They're not going to tell anyone
I don't want to be like them
So this is what I've done

This is my song about being a kid
So I can remember the things that I did
When I'm old and respectable
And uncorrectable
I'll remember being a kid

This is my song about being aware
Of the child that's inside me
And keeping it there
When the day's gray and gloomy
My heart will be roomy
And I can be a kid, not a bear

I need to play, every day
Or the kid within me withers away
I need to run, have some fun
Before my serious mysterious days are done

So, this is my song about being a child
When the going gets heavy
Or the world gets too wild
When you're getting crazy
I'm fresh as a daisy
Not moaning about all I did
'Cause I remember being a kid
Yes, I remember being a kid
I did remember being a kid
