From birth to five, you're learning
From five to ten, you're playing
By the time you're fifteen
You're never wrong
But then you turn around
And it's all gone, your childhood

Now daddy knows what he's saying
You're in my arms and I'm praying
That I'll be given the strength and time
To make yours just as happy as mine
Your childhood

Every morning
Your crying ends my sleep
I kid on I'm angry
But it's not a feeling I can keep
There's no light outside
I don't care 'cos I know it's true
That in our house
The sun shines out of you
You've got your mother's looks
Your're a beautiful little girl
You'll break boys hearts
All over this world
Then one day you'll walk out the door
And I know you'll break mine
You'll break mine

From birth to five, you're learning
From five to ten, you're playing
By the time you're fifteen you're never wrong
But then you turn around and it's all gone
Your childhood

So you're trying to talk
Any day now you'll walk
You'll be running around
Make me act like a clown
'Cos I live and I breathe
For my little girl
Our little girl
The most important thing is this whole wide world
Now daddy know what he's saying
Your in my arms and I'm praying
That I'll be given the strength an time
To make yours just as happy as mine
Your childhood
