You're On Your Way There

©Eleanor Fairchild (Truly Carmichael)



When I am older I may be a lady
May be a lady with pearls in my hair.
When I am older I may be a Lady.
Hush-a-bye baby you're on your way there.

When I am older I might be a knight
I'll have a horse and bright armor to wear.
When I am older I might be a knight.
Hush-a-bye baby you're on your way there.

When I am older I could be the queen.
I'll have a fine golden throne for my chair.
When I am older I could be the queen.
Hush-a-bye baby you're on your way there.

When I am older I may be a Minstrel,
A dancer, a singer, a poet a bard.
When I am older I may be a Minstrel.
Hush-a-bye baby it can't be that hard.

When I am older I may be an archer.
I'll loose my arrows and watch them fly true.
When I am older I may be an archer.
Hush-a-bye baby I'll watch what you do.

Anything you can do I can do someday.
I'll do tomorrow what you do today.
Anything you can do I can do someday.
Hush-a-bye baby, you're well on your way.
