Neil Young – I Am A Child lyrics
I am a child, I'll last a while.
You can't conceive
Of the pleasure in my smile.
You hold my hand,
Rough up my hair,
It's lots of fun
To have you there.

God gave to you,
Now, you give to me,
I'd like to know
What you learned.
The sky is blue
And so is the sea.
What is the color,
When black is burned
?
What is the color?

You are a man, you understand.
You pick me up
And you lay me down again.
You make the rules,
You say what's fair,
It's lots of fun
To have you there.

God gave to you,
Now, you give to me,
I'd like to know
What you learned.
The sky is blue
And so is the sea.
What is the color,
When black is burned?
What is the color?

I am a child, I'll last a while.
You can't conceive
Of the pleasure in my smile.
