CHINESE CHILDREN

If I lived in China,
I'd have some Chinese children
If I lived in China,
I'd have some Chinese children
Well

LITTLE BOYS

Life is tough
And love is rough
For the men who just can't seem to ever get enough

The days go by
And the women come and go
So many that you decide to give in and (?)

So you don't have to hear
Them all disappear
You just sit and you wait
Staring at your empty plate
And you can say, I'm a lonely sailor

Rocking gently on my dream
'Cause I can have it all
But I don't want it all
And live like I never, ever, ever tried
I just never been fully satisfied

Just to tie a little shoelace
And to share a sleeping bag
And I look ahead to the day
When I look back at all the fun that I've had

But still, but still, but still

I see so many
Little boys I want to marry
I see plenty
Little kids I'll get to have

Even when the moon goes out
Even when the sea dries out

I still see so many
Little boys I want to marry
I'll see plenty
Little kids I'll get to have now

Even when the seas all freeze
And everything is lying underneath
And even when the sun ceases to shine
I won't care,
I'll still have all my mind

So many
Little boys I want to marry
I'll see plenty
Little kids I'll get to have now

Well, little child,
When I get my dreaming done
I'll hold my breath
And I'll wait for the day to come
Oh, little Billy,
Little Timmy,
Little Jimmy,
You're the one
I may not look it,
But I swear my heart is young

For so many
Little boys I want to marry
I see plenty
Little kids I'll get to have
I got many
Little boys I want to marry
I got plenty
Little kids I'll get to have
