when I was baby I looked like a pig

my nose a snout and my ears were too big
my mother would poke at the hole
at the back of my head where my brain was exposed
I didn’t know it then but never again
would recapture those wonderful days

When I was a baby I fell down a well

I landed deep down in the furnace of hell
the devil would rock me to sleep
with stories of cities of ivory and gold
it took a long, long time before I could
escape from that terrible hole

 
 
C G Am G Fsus4 G 

when I was a baby I lived in a crib

I crawled on floors and ate with a bib
but then I was taken away
and was sold to the circus for trinkets and beads
now I lie awake at night and dream about
what I would do if I was ever set free
