Lyrics[edit | edit source]

I feel joy
I feel just
Like a boy
And now I
PLay with my toys

Nothing's really changed
I don't feel sad
you know I
Don't feel mad for my age
I'm happy just being

Someone just like me
In a way you will be
Any way in the world throws me down now
Now, world throws me right on down
and the world spills me right on down
world drains me right on down and

I feel joy
I feel just
Like a boy
And now I
Play with my noise
Nothing's really changed

I feel joy
I feel such
Happy joy
As a child I
Owned the noise
Nothing's smashing down

Happy just to be alive
Happy just to survive
Blows the tragedy down
World blows me right on down
World drains me right on down
World spills me right on down
And
Right on down and
