I am so warm in here, mom, inside your watery womb
It's also very dark, but I'll see you very soon
I know you've been waiting long, mom
Just to see my face, so I'll just help along
But I think you'd better brace
They say that it's too early, what does all this mean?
They say that few have made it, from what they've so far seen
But I can prove them wrong, mom, and I'll do it just for you
You won't beleive your eyes, when you see how big I grew
I guess the time has come, no more you'll have to wait
I think I've changed my mind
But now it's just too late
I don't know where you are, mom
They took me so far away
I am so cold and scared, so I'll close my eyes and pray
I heard a pretty voice, and knew that you were here
I am still here too, so wipe away your tear
I guess that I was wrong, mom
As you can easily see
I'm not that big at all
Why your hand's as big as me!
I think that I can do it, but I'm so small and frail
And all that they say is that only time will tell
So for now just pray that I'll be one of the few
Tell daddy that I love him, mom
And know that I love you.

"Hurry up" I always hear you say,
"Or I'll leave you behind."
I hear those words the whole day
long, and though you are so kind
Most all the time I wish just once
I'd hear you softly say,
"Just take your time to tie your
shoes or finish up your play."
The world is all so new to me,
time has not dimmed my sight.
And all around there's things to
see that fill me with delight.
Don't catch me up in your round-
rush pressures I can't stand.
Just slow down and look around,
and then you'll understand.
Please let me take the time to look,
to listen, and to climb.
I'll miss some things along the
way if I hurry all the time.
For some day you'll say, "Hurry up!"
when you're walking down the road.
You'll turn around and I'll be gone...
Cause I hurried up and growed!
