Song Description

Children deserve to be respected in their right to be happy. As they often point out when they become aware of it ¨they didn't ask to be born¨...

Story Behind the Song

Joanne Griffith wanted to include her own statement about childhood on the YôYê CD. It had to be about the most important matter: a child has a right to be happy.

Lyrics

RIGHT TO HAPPINESS

A child is born in this small world
She has a right to happiness
Hers is a right that all children share
It is a right to happiness

Many older folks in this small world
have forgotten the right to happiness
Many older souls in this small world
have forsaken the right to happiness

A child is born in this small world
her light will shine, her story will bloom
May her laughter rise up, may her song be heard
She has a right to happiness

Many younger hearts are thrust in a whirl
they lose their light along the way
Let them be guided and not misled
Don't steal their right to happiness

A child is born in this small world
She has a right to happiness
Hers is a right that all children share
It is a right to happiness
