diction is clear

    - Mary P. Carter

I really enjoyed this awesome smooth jazzy piece with a skilled and convincing vocalist. If I close my eyes, I picture myself sitting by the river, remembering ... what pleasant memories as the vocalist tells his poignant and heart felt story. Thank you for this!

Lyrics

WIDE EYED CHILD

copyright 2014 billdakemusic ASCAP
Music and Lyrics by Bill Dake

Sittin, by the river
Coolin' my heels
Tryin' to remember how the good life feels
Droppin' a line, skippin' a stone
Thinkin', " This is much better than some lives I've known"

It's better than popcorn
And better than beer
Where everything's possible, there's nothin' to fear
With the heart of a dreamer
Who's a little bit wild
I'll surrender my life
Give my life
To a Wide Eyed Child

I'm gonna wiggle my fingers
And wiggle my toes
Know the secrets that no-one knows
Float on my back with my face to the sun
And thank the stars above for a job well done

Well you can
Wiggle your fingers and wiggle your toes
Know the secrets that no-one knows
Remember the visions that made you smile
And live your life
As a Wide Eyed Child
As A Wide Eyed Child
Wide Eyed Child
Wide Eyed Child
