Well I feel just like a child
Yeah I feel just like a child
Well I feel just like a child
Well I feel just like a child

From my womb to my tomb
I guess I'll always be a child
Well some people try and treat me like a man
Yeah some people try and treat me like a man

Well I guess they just don't understand
Well some people try and treat me like a man
They think I know shit
But that's just it

I'm a child
Well I need you to tell me what to wear
Yeah I need you to help me comb my hair
Yeah I need you to come and tie my shoes

Yeah I need you to come and keep me amused
From my cave to my grave
I guess I'll always be a child
Well I need you to help me reach the door

And I need you to walk me to the store
And I need you to please explain the war
And I need you to heal me when I'm sore
You can tell by my smile

That I'm a child
And I need you to sit me on your lap
And I need you to make me take my nap
Could you first pull out a book and

Read me some of that
Cause I need you to make me take my nap
And I need you to recognize my friends
Cause they're there even though

You don't see them
They got their own chair, plate, and a seat
You know I won't touch my food
Unless they eat

From the roof to the floor
I crawl around some more
I'm a child
And I need you to help me blow my nose

And I need you to help me count my toes
And I need you to help me put on my clothes
And I need you to hide it when it shows
From be my daddy's sperm

To being packed in an urn
I'm a child
And when I steal you gotta
Slap me til I cry

Don't you stop til the tears run dry
See I was born thinking under the sky
I didn't belong to a couple of old wise guys
From sucking on my mama's breast

To when they lay my soul to rest
I'm a child
Well I guess I'm always be
