At first when I was young and small
I've thought that life was made of all
The little things. the day by day things
Peanut butter, children's play things.
Daddy's strenght and mommy's kiss
I've thought life was made of this
But then I was only just a child.
Then as I grew exotic places
Beckon me and strangers' faces
Said to me think big and prosper
Win a Grammy or an Oscar
Make it big and be someone
So that's what I've gone and done.
But it all seem empty after awhile
For all the world is cold and lonely
Fame and fortune made me only
Realize life's greatest charms
Are those you can't hold in your arms.
And now that I've been through it all
I know that life is made of all
The little things, the day by day things
Peanut butter, children's playthings
Honey's arms and baby's kiss
Simple things bring happiness.
Now I know that life is made of this...
