Story Behind The Song
Wouldn't it be nice to live in a world as seen through a childs eyes. As I watched kids play one day on a beach the universe was theirs!
Walking down a Jamacan beach. Kids come along and engage me into their world of happiness , fun and play. Putting a smile upon my face!!

As I was a walking,
along an early rising Jamaican beach.
The Marlin fish were jumping
and the palm trees were swaying,
to the rhythm of a good morning breeze.
I was standing there alone, when some kids came along,
and they took me by the hand.
We made a silly man in the sand, with a great big grin.
It felt good to be 10 again!
And they were smilin'. Smilin'.
Smilin' through and through.
And the way that love within
their hearts did shine,
put a smile within me too.
Wouldn't it be good, if each of us would, learn from little children,
how to live and play, and spend our day, without hurry, or worry.
And wouldn't it be nice, to save a big slice, from when we were children.
And always be ready to love, anywhere with anyone, because we're willing to share and care so much.
