Baby's eyes light up with every new thing he sees
Every new touch he feels crawling on his knees
He's learning, learning to live.
Reading from a book or building in the snow
Jumping higher to reach ever seeking to know
He's learning, learning to grow.

There's nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Bees making honey
Swallows moving on.

He sits by the river and he stares at the trees
He wonders at beauties around that he sees
He's learning, learning to love.
Taking home his money feeling good he's alive
His future is doubtful, but time is on his side
He's learning, learning to survive.

There's nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Bees making honey
Swallows moving on.

He plays with the children he loves big and bold
Laughs at the good times, distracts from the cold
He's learning to be old.
Though his heart's a little heavy he won't cry
He can still see the birds making way in the sky
He's learning, learning to die.

There's nothing new under the sun
There's nothing new under the sun
Bees making honey
Swallows moving on.

As I sing this song I get a feeling something isn't right
Someone is interfering with the cycle of life
They've taken the days and turned them into night
They alter the climate and say it's their right.

There's something new under the sun
There's something new under the sun
No bees making honey or swallows moving on
Swallows moving on.
