Beautiful

ŠPaul Simon, released on Surprise, 2006

.

Snowman sittin' in the sun doesn't have time to waste

He had a little bit too much fun

Now his head's erased

Back in the house, family of three

Two doin' the laundry and one in the nursery

.

We brought a brand new baby back from Bangladesh

Thought we'd name her Emily

She's beautiful. Beautiful

.

Yes, sir, head's erased, brain's a bowl of jelly

Hasn't hurt his sense of taste

Judging from his belly

But back in the house, family of four now

Two doin' the laundry and two on he kitchen floor

.

We brought a brand new baby back from mainland China

Sailed across the China Sea

She's beautiful. Beautiful

.

Go-kart sittin' in the shade

You don't need a ticket to ride

It's summertime, summertime

Slip down a water slide

Little kid dancin' in the grass

Legs like rubber band

It's summertime, summertime

There's a line at the candy stand

Keep an eye on them children

Eye on them children in the pool

You better keep an eye on them children

Eye on them children in the pool

.

We brought a brand new baby back from Kosovo

That was nearly seven years ago

He cried all night, could not sleep

His eyes were bright, dark and deep
