Lyrics

If I were only a child again No one's ever been O good to me since then Everywhere I looked It seemed so color bright There were never such things to me As black and white Remember when we were part Of that special few Everything it seemed Was so pure and true I guess we were just Too young to understand The unselfish cause of death and war And roles of man Only, only, only a child Only, only, only a child Only, only, only a child Only a child again, hey, hey If I were only a child again I would never want to venture Life like this again

People of the world Hurling sticks and stones Like the sore fates of One come up and break my bones Only, only, only a child If I were only a child again And have the ability to understand I'd speak for little people From the date of birth And ask the grown ups When will there be peace on Earth Grown ups When will there be peace on Earth Brother When will there be peace on Earth Only, only, only a child Only, only, only a child Only, only, only a child Only a child again, hey, hey
