Child Of The Universe : Barclay James Harvest

I’m a child of South Africa
I’m a child of Vietnam
I’m a child of Northern Ireland
I’m a small boy with blood on his hands

Yes I’m a child of the universe
Yes I’m a child of the universe
You can see me on the TV every night
Always there to join in someone else’s fight

I didn’t ask to be born
And I don’t ask to die
I’m an endless dream
A gene machine that cannot reason why

Yes I’m a child of the universe
Yes I’m a child of the universe
You can see me on the TV every day
I’m the child next door three thousand miles away

I’m a child of South Africa
I’m a child of Vietnam
I’m a child of Northern Ireland
I’m a small boy with blood on his hands

Yes I’m a child of the universe
Yes I’m a child of the universe
You can see me on the TV every night
Always there to join in someone else’s fight

I didn’t ask to be born
And I don’t ask to die
I’m an endless dream
A gene machine that cannot reason why

Yes I’m a child of the universe
Yes I’m a child of the universe
You can see me on the TV every day
I’m the child next door three thousand miles away
