I was better when i was small
friends were all, no enemies at all
i grew up tall and selfish i became
all those around now are no more the same
some call me foe and some call me pal
i was better when i was small

I gave beggars what they called money,
even though i hadn't any
Today in my pocket i have my purse
but what i give is only the curse
i don't even listen , when they call
i was better when i was small

i didn't know what truth was , when i was young
but it was the only thing on my tongue
i cried a lot when it pained, i danced a lot when it rained
now i have my umbrella for the rain, and i have lost tears for the pain
i cannot even cry today when i trip and fall
i was better when i was small

i didn't knew which way was right or wrong
i only knew to move along
i used to scream , shout and sing
playing was the only thing
i don't have my cap today , i don't have my ball
i was better when i was small

The years have made me like a stone,
i stand on a mountain today, but i stand alone
I know i have grown, big , strong and tall
But i was better when i was small..
