4th of July Baby lyrics

4th of July Baby
c1990 Kaia Fowler

Down by the river where the children play,
The fireworks let go their violent sounds.
Fireflies blend with the sparklers drawing
Crazy circles round and round.

Sister it’s your birthday, baby, don’t you know,
This night sky is filled with color just for you.
And down beyond the tree line aging lovers play
Games they remember from their youth,
Games they remember from their youth.

Coals from the barbeque have all gone cold.
Mosquitoes soon will call the night their own.
I see you bathed your face in the ice cream.
It’s time we grabbed our blankets and head home, home.

Sister it’s your birthday, baby, don’t you know,
This night sky is filled with color just for you.
And down beyond the tree line aging lovers play
Games they remember from their youth,
Games they remember from their youth.

Now the only color left is midnight blue.
The stars are kissing up to the moon.
I sit here and I see you in that yellow dress.
Darling child you’re growing up too soon, soon.

Sister it’s your birthday, baby, don’t you know,
This night sky is filled with colors just for you,
And down beyond the tree line aging lovers play
Games they remember from their youth,
Games they remember from their youth.

Down by the river where the children play,
The fireworks let go their violent sounds.
Fireflies blend with the sparklers drawing
Crazy circles round and round and round
and round and round and round.
