Although you see the world
Different than me
Sometimes I can touch upon
The wonders that you see
And all of new colors
In pictures you've designed

Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine
Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

You don't need direction
You know which way to go
And I don't want to hold you back
I just want to watch you grow
And you're the one who taught me
You don't have to look behind

Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine
Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Nobody's gonna to kill your dreams
Or tell you how to live your life
There'll always be people
To make it hard for awhile
But you'll turn their heads
When they see you smile

The times you were born
May not have been the best
You can make the times to come
Better than the rest
I know you will be honest
If you can't always be kind

Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine
Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine
