Well, I heard the sound of thunder
On the day that I was born
I was blinded by the lighting
An' baptized in the storm

My father started crying
When he saw what he had done
But my mother started praying
Have mercy on my son
He is a child of Babylon

I am a child of Babylon
Lord, have mercy on a wayward son
Nowhere to hide, nowhere to run
I am a child, a child of Babylon

Well, I've fooled around so many times
When I've known it ain't been right
But I paint it all in colors
When it really should be black and white

I sail my ship through muddy waters
Try to open every door
When I saw the Seven Wonders
It left me wanting more

I am a child of Babylon
Lord, have mercy on a wayward son
Nowhere to hide, got no place to run
I am a child, a child of Babylon

On my day of judgment
I know how it will be
I'm prepared to meet my maker
With no hope for charity

I'll stand alone and pay the price
For everything I've done
'Cos there ain't a guardian angel
For a child of Babylon

I am a child, child of Babylon
I am a child of Babylon
Lord, have mercy on a wayward son
Nowhere to hide, got no place to run
I am a child, child of Babylon
Child of Babylon
