Give me the sun so bright and warm
Give me the sand of golden charm
Give me my sleep from dusk to dawn
To lie in mother’s lap and yawn
I’ll be happy , the little one says.
Give me shade from the sun so hot
Give me the key to nobler thought
Give me grandchildren wool headed like sheep
A rocking chair to lull them to sleep
I’ll be happy ,the old man says.
Give me the car my neighbor bought
Give me the job the other guy got
Give me the thrones of kings and czars
Give me the moon, give me the stars
I wont be happy till I have it all
Who said that?
