The Eyes of a Child

The eyes of a child will always see That the dollies cup is filled with tea The action man always fights And Barbie and Ken dance under neon lights In the hundred acre wood Life is almost always good With Christopher Robin and Winnie The Pooh And Eyore and Owl and Piglet too Oh to see as a child can see Not as an adult like you and me To see a magic fairyland Where Snow White and her prince walk hand in hand To see the world how it can be Not how it is for you and me To see the world through innocent eyes Where life is fun and Peter flies If we try we really can Though you're a grown woman and I'm a grown man We can remember those days we laughed and smiled And once more see the world through the eyes of a child
