lyrics

The golden eyed children play for a slice of golden birthday cake
watch the children play

Their mothers smile as they watch keep watch as their mothers smile
for their golden child

They say they have their father's eyes their eyes as their fathers say
the color of their name

There's a tower in the sky
forty thousand stories high
your father's story book archive
your father's tower in the sky

There's a flower on the vine
deep beneath the treetop line
your mother's source of milk and wine
your mother's flower on the vine

The golden eyed children play for a slice of golden birthday cake
watch the children play
the golden eyed children play for a slice of golden birthday cake
