Cat Stevens – Child For A Day lyrics
I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day
We were the children
Who sang in the morning
We were the children
Who laughed at the sun
Who listened to those who spoke with their wisdom
We are the ones we would say, but

We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

We are the men who worry of nothing
We are the men who fight without aim
We listen to no one, yet speak of our wisdom
We are the pawns in the game

We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day

We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday
