Your Childhood Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

From birth to five, you're learning
From five to ten, you're playing
By the time you're fifteen, you're never wrong
But then you turn around and it's all gone, your childhood

Now daddy knows what he's saying
You're in my arms and I'm praying
That I'll be given the strength and time
To make yours just as happy as mine, your childhood

Every morning, your crying ends my sleep
I kid on, I'm angry, but it's not a feeling I can keep
There's no light outside, I don't care 'cos I know it's true
That in our house the sun shines out of you

You've got your mother's looks, you're a beautiful little girl
You'll break boys hearts all over this world
Then one day you'll walk out the door
And I know you'll break mine, you'll break mine

From birth to five, you're learning
From five to ten, you're playing
By the time you're fifteen, you're never wrong
But then you turn around and it's all gone, your childhood

So you're trying to talk, any day now you'll walk
You'll be running around, make me act like a clown
'Cos I live and I breathe for my little girl, our little girl
The most important thing is this whole wide world

Now daddy knows what he's saying
You're in my arms and I'm praying
That I'll be given the strength an time
To make yours just as happy as mine, your childhood
