Stompin' In a Puddle

Lyrics
Tryin' to remember what it was like
Being young - full of life
All my senses open and alive
No big hurry when I was five
No big hurry - I was five

Sleddin' down down a hill
Out of control
Catching frogs at the fishin' hole
Not much I had to do
Not an ounce of strife
My ticket to ride was a rusty red bike!

I loved stompin' in a puddle
To feed my soul
Stompin' in a puddle
Not doin' what I'm told
No worries - a life that's so carefree
Stompin' in a puddle rescue me
Awaken the child deep inside me

How it happen - I feel so old?
Everything for reason
Fitting the mold
Need to give myself a break
Do as I choose
My little boy tells me I've got nothing to lose
He tells me I've got nothing to lose

Won't throw in the towel
Give up the fight
Before I fade into my twilight
Hand-in-hand at the edge he says
"Come-on Pappa I'll show you the way!"

I'm stompin' in a puddle
To feed my soul
Stompin' in a puddle
Not doin' what I'm told
No worries - a life that's so carefree
Stompin' in a puddle rescue me
An old friend - so glad to see
Awaken child inside me!
