Go back ten years ago sunbeams dancin' round
Go back ten years ago sunbeams dancin' down
Autumn's child Autumn child

Autumn's child got a loophole round her finger
Halo rings her head
Cornhusk hair makes me linger
Her cat's stare meets my dare
A man's chair greets my stare

Gonna be my wife she sang she said
Ooh, she's gonna be my wife
Gonna start my heart she said
(I'm still not sure if this last phrase is correct..."starch my life?!)
(start or spark my heart?)

Go back ten years ago sunbeams in her hair
Go back ten years ago sunbeams fill the air

I'll just spin, be nimble
Level down and tremble
Fish pond streak of light
Found the child I had to find

Apple shine share together
Got the time to make her mine
Fish pond streaks?love kind
Found the child I had to find

Autumn's child - I met her at a balloon-bust picnic
Ooh, she caught me with the Beauty Queen
Her jade-green eyes
Buttons and bows and fancy ties
Her feet of dust under trees of rust
Make them sandals gambol under knees of trust

Gonna be my wife gonna spice my life
Gonna be my wife she sang she said

Gonna be my wife gonna spice my life she said

Go back ten years ago sunbeams shining down
Go back ten years ago sunbeams glancin' round....
Autumn's child...
