little boy and old man

Old man , old man, is the world really round?
Tell me where in the world can a blue bird can be found?
Tell me where is the sky up above so blue
and when you were a boy did you cry like I do?

What becomes of the sun when it falls in the sea
and who lights it again so that we can see?
Tell me why can't I fly without wings when I try
I just can't understand why you're crying old man?

Little boy, little boy, yes it's true
The world is round
 But I never did find
Where the bluebird is found and
the sky is so blue,just because of love
May your sky always be, like the blue sky above

And the sun only seems to fall into the sea
If the sun always shone
how could moonlight be?
Little boy you can't fly, you might fall and I..
Well good bye, little boy,
 Good bye.

Old people and children have so much in common.

Little boy says I drop things. Old man says so do I
Little boy says I wet my pants, old man says so do I
Little boy says grown ups dont pay attention to me
Old man says  same with me
Little boy says I often cry, old man says so do I.

When you have things in common with other people,
esp old people, kids don't feel that bad .
I guess this is why a home should include grand parents.
The more communication there is between people,
the better it is.

I loved the songs from my time.

I don't remember this song, but I certainly enjoyed it. I also like the idea of children knowing their grandparents well -- that's good for both of them.

I don't remember those songs. Are they old folk songs?

Rick You don't remember Jimmy Boyd?
He used to sing so many songs.
I don't know how I came across those records but I loved to rock in my rocking chair and listen to them.

George so do I .
I think all kids should enjoy grand parents and vs.

Sandy It's not that far behind but it sure was the best time.
I wish I could have given my kids this peaceful time to grow naturally without being pushed and rushed all the time.
Slow is better and maybe then teachers/parents, wouldn't have to put kids on drugs.
