My name is Barbra

My mother said

That babies come in bottles

But last week she said

They grew on special babies bushes

I don't believe in the storks either

They're all in the zoo

Busy with their own babies

And what's a baby bush anyway?

My name is Barbra...

A kid again / I'm five

I wish I were a kid again

Doing what I did again

Here I make my bit again

To be a kid again

Once more through the door

Once more as before

Into a land where

I leave cares behind

Please take me back

There are things I must find

Oh, I wish I were a kid again

Doing what I did again

A kid again...

I'm five, I'm five

I am a big girl now, I'm five

I can dress myself,

I don't need Mum

To help me anymore

And when I sit in my father's chair

My feet can reach the floor

See that

I'm five, I'm five

I am a big girl now, I'm five

My mother doesn't spank me just

For going without a hat

She knows darn well I'd run away

'Cause I'm too old for that

What does she think I'm three? Not me

What does she think I'm four?

I'm more than four

I'm even more than four and a half...

I'm five!

On April 24!

Jenny Rebecca

Jenny Rebecca, four days old

How do you like the world so far?

Jenny Rebecca, four days old

What a lucky, lucky, lucky

Lucky girl you are

For you have swings to be swung on

Trees to be climbed up

Days to be young on

Toys you can wind up

Grass to be lying on

Sun up above

Pillows for crying on

When you're in love

Ponies for riding on

Wind in your hair

Slides to be sliding on

Leaves in the air

Dogs to be caring for

Love to be giving

Dreams to be daring for

Long as you're living

Yes, you have

Dreams to be daring for

Long as you're living

Jenny Rebecca, four days old

What a lucky, lucky, lucky

Lucky girl you are...

My Pa

My Pa can light my room at night

By just his being near

And make a fear for dream all right

By grinning ear to ear

My Pa can do most anything

He sets his mind to do

He'd even move a mountain

If he really wanted to

My Pa can sweeten up the day

That clouds and rain make gray

And tell me funny stories

That will chase the clouds away

My Pa's the only one on Earth

I can tell my troubles to

His arms are house and home to me

His face's a pretty poem to me

My Pa's the finest friend I ever knew

I only wish that you

Could know him too...

Sweet zoo

I dreamed last night that

I was a tiger, in the jungle

But I was a big bad tiger, for a lion killed me

And then I was an elephant, a great big elephant

There wasnít anything I couldnít do

Till they caught and they brought me to a zoo

So I dreamed I was an alligator

-Crocodile?-No, alligator!

With a great big mouth

And four very funny little legs

Which are no good for dancing

So, then I was a dancing bear

And I was doing my dancing where the bears dance

But I was sneezing,

ĎCause I was a dancing polar bear

And it was freezing

Then I dreamed I was a giraffe

I looked so ridiculous I wanted to laugh

But giraffes canít talk, so how can they laugh?

Who ever saw a giraffe laugh?

Then I woke up

And I was not a tiger, or and elephant,

I was not an alligator.

-Crocodile? -No, alligator!

I was not a dancing bear or a tall giraffe

I was only me...

And thatís the way Iíll be!

Oh, thatís the way Iíll be

I enjoy being an oyster!

Where is the wonder

Where is the wonder that I once felt?

Watching snowflakes melt as a child

Where is the wonder that I once knew?

When the sky of blue turned wild?

Where is the magic that thrilled me so,

Watching flowers grow in the spring?

Where is the magic that filled the sky?

How did robins fly and sing?

Where are the marvels that I marveled at?

What changed the kitten into a cat?

Where are the mysteries that I couldnít solve?

What made the world revolve?

Where is the wonder that years conceal,

That a child can feel now and then?

Oh, where is the wonder of long ago

That Iíll never know again?

I can see it

Beyond that road lies a shining world

Beyond that road lies despair

Beyond that road lies a world thatís gleaming

People who are scheming...

Beauty, hunger, glory, sorrow, never a pain or care

But Iím liable to find a couple of surprises there...

Thereís a song

I must sing, itís a well known song,

But the tune is bitter

And it doesnít take long to learn,

I can learn!

That pretty little world that beams so bright

That pretty little world that seems delightful cambered

Let me learn...

Let me learn...

For I can see it, shining somewhere

Bright lights somewhere invite me to compare and learn

And Iím ready,

I can hear it silent singing

Inside my ear, I hear them all singing of love!

Who knows maybe all the visions that I see

May be waiting just for me to say

Take me there and make me see it, make me feel it

I know it so, I know that it really may be...

Let me learn!

Someone to watch over me

Looking everywhere havenít found him yet

Heís the big affair,

I cannot forget

Only man I ever think of with regret...

Thereís a somebody Iím longing to see,

I hope that he turns out to be

Someone who'll watch over me

Iím a little lamb whoís lost in the wood

I know I could always be good

To one whoíll watch over me

Although he may not be the man

Some girls think of as handsome

To my heart he carries the key, humm...

Wonít you tell him, please,

Please, put on some speed

Follow my lead, oh, how I need

Someone to watch over me...

I've got no strings

I've got no strings to hold me down

To make me fret, or make me frown

I had strings but now I'm free

There are no strings on me

I've got no strings so I have fun

I'm not tied to anyone

How I love my liberty, there are no strings on me!

Hi-ho the me-ri-o,

I'm as happy as can be

I want the world to know nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings to hold me down

To make me fret, or make me frown

I had strings but now I'm free

There are no strings on me

Why does the gay little dicky bird sing?

What put the "zing" in a butterfly's wing?

What's the reason for the smile of a troubadour?

Why does the breeze have a barrel of fun?

Even the bee who's a son of a gun

It's all because they're free

And stringless the same as me

I've got no strings and I'm so glad

No strings at all to make me sad

I had strings but now I'm free,

There are no strings on me

Oh, hi-ho, the way we go

I'm as happy as can be

I want the world to know nothing ever worries me!

I've got no strings so I have fun

I'm not tied up to anyone

How I love my liberty, there are no strings on me!

No ties to bind me, it's not easy to find me,

'Cause I've got no strings on me!

If you were the only boy in the world

If I were the only girl in the world

And you were the only boy

Nothing else would matter in the world today

We could go on loving in the same old way

A garden of eden, mmm, just made for two

With nothing to harm our joy

I would say such wonderful things to you

There would be such wonderful things to do

If were the only girl in the world

And you were the only boy ...

If I were the only girl...

Nothing else would matter in the world today

We could go on loving in the same sweet way

A garden of eden, mmm, just made for two

With nothing to change our joy

I would say such wonderful things to you

There would be such beautiful things to do

If were the only girl in the world

And you were the only boy.

Why did I choose you

Why did I choose you?

What did I see in you?

I saw the heart you hide so well

I saw a quiet man who had a gentle way

A way that caught me in its glowing spell

Why did I want you?

What could you offer me?

A love to last a life time through

And when I lost my heart so many years ago,

I lost it lovingly and willingly to you...

If I had to choose again,

I would still choose you...

And when I lost my heart so many years ago,

I lost it lovingly and willingly to you...

If I had to choose again,

I would still choose you...

My man

Oh, my man, I love him so,

Heíll never know

All my life is just despair,

But I donít care

When he takes me in his arms

The world is bright, all right...

Whatís the difference if I say

Iíll go away

When I know Iíll come back on my knee someday

For whatever my man is,

I am his forever more

It cost me a lot,

But thereís one thing that Iíve got, itís my man

Cold and wet tired, you bet,

But all that I soon forget,

With my man

Heís not much for looks

And no hero out of books, itís my man

Two or three girls has he

That he likes as well as me, but I love him...

Oh, my man, I love him so,

Heíll never know

All my life is just despair, but I donít care

When he takes me in his arms

The world is bright, all right...

Whatís the difference if I say

Iíll go away

When I know Iíll come back on my knee someday

For whatever my man is,

I am his forever more
