  • I am a child, I'll last a while
    You can't conceive of the pleasure in my smile
    You hold my hand, rough up my hair
    It's lots of fun to have you there

    God gave to you, now, you give to me
    I'd like to know what you learned
    The sky is blue and so is the sea
    What is the color, when black is burned?
    What is the color?

    You are a man, you understand
    You pick me up and you lay me down again
    You make the rules, you say what's fair
    It's lots of fun to have you there

    God gave to you, now, you give to me
    I'd like to know what you learned
    The sky is blue and so is the sea
    What is the color, when black is burned?
    What is the color?

    I am a child, I'll last a while
    You can't conceive of the pleasure in my smile Writer/s: Neil Young
