Once I could see what my future would be
ĎTwas there in the palm of my hand
How many kids and how long would I live
I would follow my own master plan

   Now I suddenly see Iím as grown as can be
   And Iím liviní as hard as I can
   Yes, Iím older, you see,
   But the original me
   Is that same little Child of Three

Once there was time, not a tree I didnít climb
Nor an insect I had not collected
Higher and higher, on a swing, never tired
When we ran through the world well-protected

   Now I run my own show, and Iím nearly a pro
   And it gets harder and harder as you go
   ĎCause Iím older, you see,
   But the original me
   Is that same little Child of Three

Once I was taught how to walk, how to talk,
How to love, how to fear, how to hate
Try to undo what was harmful to you
As you follow your lifeline to your fate

   Yes, the years slip away, and theyíre coming in gray
   But Iím growiní a little more each day
   ĎCause Iím older, you see,
   But the original me
   Is that same little Child of Three

   Woe is me
   Same old Child of Three
   Iím just the same little child, oh
   Iím just the same, same old

Backgrounds:
  Same little child
  Same little Child of Three
(repeat & fade)
