As They Do

(david m. bailey)
I got Dandelions in my bed of roses
My Daughter, she picked every one
She put them i n a jar inside the kitchen
Said the room needed a little sun

Upside down and inside out
only a child can figure it out
wish I could see as they do
much more simple, still so true.

My son, he jumped up on the sofa
claimed he was a pirate on his ship at sea
he said 'dad, unless you can walk on water
I suggest you hop on board with me

Then he said 'i got a lot of heroes
and I know why God made them with two hands
it's so they can hold both a sword and a shield
it's really not so hard to understand

Upside down and inside out
only a child can figure it out
wish I could see as they do
much more simple, still so true.

God willing, some day I'll be a grand-dad
and sing to my grandchildren on my knee
'Spose I'll still be learning how the world works
as they patiently explain it all to me
only a child can figure it out
wish I could see as they do
sounds so simple, must be true.
