Childhood Games

 
Half for me, half for you
Everything broke into two
I'll keep your secret if you keep mine
cross my heart hope to die
Apples, peaches, pumpkin pie
you were young and so was I
Careful we don't make a flub
if we want to join their club

Fingers crossed behind your back
Step on a line, break your mama's back

Once, once you stop crying
you're gonna find out, little baby
they never stop lying

Childhood games
they never change
when you grow up
they stay the same

Who's the leader of the gang?
Who can make the biggest bang?
Who's the king of this here hill?
Who's the one I'm gonna have to kill?
In a box of sand we played
where bitter seeds were sown one day
Every war is just the same
nothing more than childish games

Spun the bottle, kicked the can
played Marco Polo, hide and seek, Simon says again and again

Once, once you stop crying
you're gonna find out, little baby
they never stop lying

Childhood games
they never change
when you grow up
they stay the same
