Lyrics:

Holding a baby, is holding beginnings
Children and time can only surprise
The first rule of parenting has to be patience
then add discipline, vacations and pie

Chorus:
Hairpin turns and long, slow changes
With this is girl child, more questions then answers.
When I was good, I was very good.
but mostly I was wild

The cinnamon thrush sings thank you, thank you
Parents are sunshine, sunshine and rain
A playful squirrel plots mischief, mischief
The seasons are turning again and again

Chorus:
Hairpin turns and long, slow changes
With this girl child, more questions then answers
When I was good, I was very good.
But mostly I was wild

We danced through the years as if it were easy
Two stepped through crisis, waltzed into strange
Family music, grace and mystery
as we dance, we are rearranged

Chorus:
And the gifts you've given, never failed
to find me in the clear.
My wayward ship has loving sails
because you brought me here.
My wayward ship has loving sails
because you brought me here.
