I have serched every where for the words to the song... I believe was origonaly titled Little Child, Daddy Dear. George Winston did a verson entitled Mon Enfant. It was also recorded by Wes Montgomery and by Ralph Towner. It was recorded as a guitar solo for Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. A good friend of mine used to sing it as a child with her family but she can't remember the words and I would really like to find them for her. Can anyone HELP PLEASE.

LITTLE CHILD

Daddy dear, tell me please, is the world really round?
Tell me where is the bluebird of happiness found?
Tell me why is the sky up above so blue?
And when you were a child did your daddy tell you
What becomes of the sun when it falls into the sea
And who lights it again bright as bright can be?
Tell me why can't I fly without wings through the skies?
Tell me why, Daddy dear, are there tears in your eyes?
 
Little one, little one, yes, the world's really round
And the bluebird you search for will surely be found
And the sky up above is so blue and clear so that
You'll see the bluebird if it should come near
And the sun doesn't fall when it slips out of sight
All it does is make way for the moon's pretty light
And if children could fly there'd be no need for birds
And I cry, little one, 'cause I'm touched by your words
 
Don't be sad, Daddy dear, if it's true the world's round
I will search 'round the world till the bluebird is found
Little one, there's no need to wander too far
For what you really seek is right here where you are
Show me where, Daddy dear, and here's what I will do
I will take the dear bluebird and give it to you
Dear, the bluebird's the love in your heart pure and true
And I found it the day heaven blessed me with you!"
