When I heard the sound
Of thunder
On the day that I was
Born,
I was blinded by the
Lighting
An' baptised in the
Storm.
My father started crying
When he saw what he
Had done,
But, my mother started
Praying
Have mercy on my son,
He is a child of
Babylon.
I am a child of Babylon,
Lord have mercy on a
Wayward son.
Nowhere to hide,
Nowhere to run.
I am a child,
A child of Babylon.
When I've fooled
Around so many times
When I've known it ain't
Been right,
But, I paint it all in
Colours
When it really should be
Black and white.
I sail my ship through
Muddy waters,
Try to open every door,
When I saw the seven
Wonders
It left me wanting more.
I am a child of Babylon,
Lord have mercy on a
Wayward son.
Nowhere to hide, got
No place to run.
I am a child,
A child of Babylon.
On my day of
Judgement
I know how it will be,
I'm prepared to meet
My maker
With no hope for
Charity.
I'll stand alone and pay
The price
For everything I've
Done,
'Cos there ain't guardian
Angel
For a child of Babylon.
(Solo)
I am a child,
A child of Babylon.
I am a child of Babylon,
Lord have mercy on a
Wayward son.
Nowhere to hide, got
No place to run.
I am a child,
A child of Babylon.
Child of Babylon
