    Children are people who live in a land
    Made of raindrops and puddles and pebbles and streams
    Silently watching a twig as it sails
    On a clear crystal pool to an island of dreams

    There go a pair who have just built a city of mud
    And it's real
    They know that mud doesn't look very pretty
    But ooh, how it feels

    This little boy greets the snow with a smile
    That little girl has discovered an isle made out of pillows
    One little fellow is friends with the wind in the willows
    All of them children and all are mysterious people

    I can remember when I was a boy
    That my bed was a ship that I sailed through the night
    And I remember the world as a place
    That was eager and loving and shiny and bright

    Where is the boy who was friends with the rainbow
    And once rode upon
    Where is that shy and mysterious person
    Oh where have I gone

    I can remember I once said my prayers
    But now I stand by while my children say theirs
    Watching them kneeling
    And I could cry that one day they'll forget
    All that they're feeling
    Oh, what a shame that our children should grow into peo...ple
