What Our Children Teach Words and Music by Bill Pere

The ocean waves goodbye, the child walks into the sunset
He's carrying a bucket full of pebbles, shells, and sand
The twinkle in his eye, like the first star of the evening
The joy of simple pleasures, simple treasures in his hand...

A child is an ocean full of wonder, always sure
That God is glad to share what's on the beach
A wild kind of notion that the water's always pure
And to touch the sky, you only have to reach....
I wonder what this world would be
If we all learned what our children teach

The ocean waves are high, the child walks into the sunset
He's carrying a bucket full of pebbles, sand, and shells
He watches seagulls fly to the first star of the evening
They spread their sails, he hears the tales and stories each one tells...

A child is an ocean full of wonder, always sure
That God is glad to share what's on the beach
A wild kind of notion that the water's always pure
And to touch the sky, you only have to reach....
I wonder what this world would be
If we all learned what our children teach
