Lyrics:

Child of Dreams

One summer day he finally came, my little child of dreams
So innocent yet ignorant of life, as it is to me
Will joy give way to worriment of wondering what will be
Will he be able to learn to walk the streets, of our urban sea

Will he learn to love his fellow man
Will he learn that education, it is the key

A white dust blows across city streets in swirling winds of death
Brought forth by out of country money men, who sell to you and me
The man in blue gets no respect for what he represents
No guidance for the growing boys of light, no moral tree

Will he learn to love his fellow man
Will he learn that education, it is the key

Solos

Will he learn to love his fellow man
Will he learn that education, it is the key

The child of dreams has much to learn of modern society
Of right and wrong and point of view of life, as it is to me
The lure of fame and green and gold can lead a child astray
To be a helpless homeless man is the price, he may have to pay
To pay
