Picking up Pebbles Lyrics

Picking up Pebbles (捡鹅卵石) - Gerrie Pretorius

Written by:Johnny Curtis

Look at the kids on the sandy shore

 

Watching the tide come in

 

I used to do the same sweet things

 

What pleasures it did bring

 

Picking up pebbles and throwing them into the sea

 

Watching the white surf carry them all back to me

 

But now it's all over

I've grown up it don't seem the same

 

The things in my childhood I know are all just a game

 

To sit in my bed and watch the stars

 

High up in the sky

 

To say my prayers and off to sleep

 

And then to wave them goodbye

 

Wouldn't it be nice if clocks could be turn back the years

 

Just to relive the good times and all of the tears

 

But now it's all over

I've grown up it don't seem the same

 

The things in my childhood I know are all just a game

 

Look at the kids on the sandy shore

 

Watching the tide come in

 

I used to do the same sweet things

 

What pleasures it did bring

 

Picking up pebbles and throwing them into the sea

 

Watching the white surf carry them all back to me

 

But now it's all over

I've grown up it don't seem the same

 

The things in my childhood I know are all just a game

 

Wouldn't it be nice if clocks could be turn back the years

 

Just to relive the good times and all of the tears

 

But now it's all over

I've grown up it don't seem the same

 

 

The things in my childhood I know are all just a game
