Song Lyrics
by: Michelle Smith

Hello I think the song is called Little Child and I believe it's a French Lullaby. I was watching this movie called the Naked Kiss with Constance Towers and heard it and fell in love with it. Here are the lyrics:

LITTLE CHILD (MOMMY/DADDY DEAR)
(Mon Enfant)
(Traditional)

Wes Montgomery

Also recorded by: Spike Jones; Ralph Towner; George Winston.


Mommy 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 is so blue?
And when you were a child did your mommy 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, Mommy 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, Mommy 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, Mommy 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

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!"
