Song Description

The energy and imagination of a child at the beach can be inspirational to us all. And the miracle of new life as baby turtles emerge from the egg and race for the ocean--that is one of the most exciting experiences anyone could have.

Story Behind the Song

Someone very close to me delights in everything she experiences at the beach.


Florida's child will race the wind.
She'll laugh if you try to chase, and then
She'll lose you among the cypress knees,
Bowing to great applause from the towering trees.

Florida's child has rainbow eyes
For tracing her colors on the skies.
A merry-go-round of clouds now whirls;
She lies in the grass and smiles as they twirl and twirl.

Bridge: Florida's child regards the tides
As rhythm to do her dancing by.
As gulls glide high above the strand,
She coaxes a dragonfly with her outstretched hand.

Florida's child regales the moon
By weaving her beams along the dunes
As leatherback hatchlings cross the sand.
She watches them trade the land for the open sea.
