lyrics

Oh I wish that I was four
I'd get to dress up more
I'd spend more time outdoors
I wouldn't have to pay the bills
I'd have Calpol when I'm ill.
I wish that I was four

Oh I wish that I was four
I'd be more self assured
It would be cute when I snored
We'd be princesses and kings
You would push me on the swings
I wish that I was four

We'd play games
You'd let me win
I'd have ketchup with everything

Oh I wish that I was four
I'd see no rich, no poor
I'd sit cross-legged on the floor
Silly things would make me laugh
instead of showers, I'd have baths
I wish that I was four

Oh I wish that I was four
I'd get out of all the chores
I'd be ignorant of wars
But I have long grown past the size
When I could have a shoulder ride
I wish that I was four

Runny nose?
I'd use my sleeve
Say "it's true"
And I'll believe you

Instrumental

You'd explain
I'd understand
I'd get scared
You'd hold my hand

Oh I wish that I was four
I might be less mature
But I’d know that I am yours
I'll drink from a plastic cup
And not hurry to grow up
I wish that I was four

Oh I wish that I was four
It'd be simpler I'm sure
Oh for cynicism’s cure
We'd be quickly reconciled
And I could trust just like a child
I wish that I was four
