Child Of The Universe - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

I'm a child of south africa
I'm a child of vietnam
I'm a child of northern ireland
I'm a small boy with blood on his hands
Yes i'm a child of the universe
Yes i'm a child of the universe
You can see me on the tv every night
Always there to join in someone else's fight

I didn't ask to be born and i don't ask to die
I'm an endless dream, a gene machine
That cannot reason why

Yes i'm a child of the universe
Yes i'm a child of the universe
You can see me on the tv every day
I'm the child next door three thousand miles away
