Child for a Day Lyrics

by Cat Stevens

I was a child who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day

We were the children
Who sang in the morning
We were the children
Who laughed at the sun

Who listened to those
Who spoke with their wisdom
We are the ones we would say

But were getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

But we are the men who worry of nothing
We are the men who fight without aim
Who listen to no one, yet speak of our wisdom
We are the pawns in the game

Were getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

I was a child who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day

But were getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
'Cause we were the children of yesterday
