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
