On the battlefields of home
Wherever you may roam
I hope you’ll always know
You still have a place to go

Do you remember
That time you fell upon your face
Trying to fly into space?
You couldn’t wait
Little Child of Nature
Flying high as the sky will take her

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

On the autumn leaves of gold
Or winter’s silver throne
She lives out in the wild
I miss this nature’s child

Do you remember
That time we flipped into the lake
Just as the moon was taking shape?
It fascinates little Child of Nature
Let’s celebrate whoever is her maker

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Do you remember
When you would run out in the rain
Letting it fall upon your face?
You loved the taste, little Child of Nature
You went away, little Child of Nature

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
