Song Lyrics Sunday

Helen dedicated her song this week to her new nephew, Brody. She chose Billy Joel, Lullaby (Goodnight, My Angel.)

Mine, from the mid-1970s, always echoes in my mind when a new little one is born into my life or my awareness.

Dan Hill, “Welcome.” Lyrics: Metrolyrics

Welcome baby boy to a brand new world
May the tears fall like a rainstorm from your eyes
Looks like life kinda took you by surprise
You’re so tiny that it scares me
Your nakedness just stares at me
And I never thought my head could spin so high

Welcome baby boy, don’t look so confused
One day I’ll try to sit down and explain
That the love that brought you here will never change
You’re so helpless that it shakes me
Yet so charged with life you make me
So happy that I think, I’m gonna cry

Life has come to greet you child
Play it safe, play it wild reach for the truth
You’re on the rules beyond the games
Life is yours and yours along
Free to settle, free to roam
Free to grow and free to change
Or free to fight to stay the same

Welcome baby boy to a brand new world
May the tears fall like a rainstorm from your eyes
Looks like life kinda took you by surprise
Oh, surprise

      I thought you might like the lyrics.
      I’ve sung it in my head many times; little ones coming into the world make me think of the song.
