Now That I Am Five




When I was born

My daddy said

There came the sounding of a horn

A horn, a horn!

My daddy said

There came the sounding of a horn

The day that I was born



When I turned one

My mama said

Then shone the moon, then shone the sun

The moon, the sun!

My mama said

The moon shone and the sun

The day that I turned one




When I turned two

My daddy said

The rain came down and washed us new

Brand new, all new!

My daddy said

It washed us all brand new

The day that I turned two




When I turned three

My mama said

Then there were you and there were we

Just you and we!

My mama said

You were there, and we

The day that I turned three




When I turned four

My daddy said

I wished for more, I wanted more

More and more!

My daddy said

I wished and wished for more

The day that I turned four




Now I am five

My mama says

And it's so good to be alive

To be alive!

My daddy says

Each day I'm more and more alive

Now that I am five
