"See The Child" as written by and Jane Siberry....
a child was lost at sea today
afloat on an ice floe
they floated away
a white cloud?
a carpet?
a white sleigh?

See the child
that chases the dog
that jumps for the butterfly
yeah yeah
see the yellow dress
on the child
that chases the dog
that jumps for the butterfly
yeah yeah
See the blue sky
behind the yellow dress
on the child
that chases the dog
that jumps for the butterfly
yeah yeah
See the sun up
high in the sky
behind the yellow dress
on the child
that chases the dog
that jumps for the butterfly
yeah yeah


see the grass growin'
up to the bright sun up
high in the blue sky
behind the yellow dress
on the child
that chases the dog
that leaps for his happiness
see the grasses growin' taller and taller and
taller and taller and taller and taller
until you cannot spy with your little eye ...oh

where is the child that...?
where is the child that...?
where is the child that...?

it was a yellow sun
and it was a blue sky
and the grass was a-growin'
and the bees were a-buzzin'
and through all this
the butterfly simple flies

i t ' s t h e p u l l o f l i f e

humble bee
humble bye
humble dog
humble child
humble grass
humble sky
humble me
humble my
humble thee
humble thy
humble
earth's lullaby earth's lullaby earth's lullaby

o h h . . . h o w t i m e f l i e s b y

A child was lost at sea today
Afloat on an ice floe
they floated away
No one in the village will leave these shores
Until the child is safe once more
So if you see that child in someone's eyes
Bring us home
