new year’s baby (first lullaby) lyrics – cyndi lauper

when i first saw you, you looked alien
like someone in mid dance like a little old man
when you first held me in your tiny grip
you seemed just like popeye with your cap and your squint

shall we sail away with bluebirds and clear skies?
no frowns today just smiles that will brighten our way
and i’ll take this old man by the hand
to begin again, to begin again

when i first looked into eyes like mine
i wondered what i’d learn to see through them in time
when you first smiled with your toothless grin
you broke my heart open, all the flood gates rushed in

shall we sail away with bluebirds and clear skies?
no frowns today, just smiles that will brighten our way
and i’ll take this old man by the hand
to begin again

shall we sail away with bluebirds and clear skies?
no frowns today, just smiles that will brighten our way
and i’ll take this old man by the hand
to begin again

sail away with bluebirds and clear skies
no frowns today, just smiles that will brighten our way
and i’ll take this old man by the hand
to begin again, to begin again

and i’ll take this old man by the hand
and i’ll take this old man by the hand
and i’ll take this old man by the hand
to begin again
