WHERE IS THE WONDER?
(Dion McGregor / Michael Barr 1962)
Released by Barbra Streisand 1965 ‘My Name Is Barbra’
Where is the wonder that I once felt,
Watching snowflakes melt as a child?
Where is the wonder that I once knew,
When the sky of blue turned wild?
Where is the magic that thrilled me so,
Watching flowers grow in the spring?
Where is the magic that filled the sky?
How did robins fly and sing?
Where are the marvels that I marvelled at?
What changed the kitten to a cat?
Where are the mysteries that I couldn't solve?
What made the world revolve?
Where is the wonder that years conceal,
That a child can feel now and then?
Oh, where is the wonder of long ago
That I'll never know again?
