When I have said my evening prayer,
And my clothes are folded on the chair,
And mother switches off the light,
I'll still be six years old tonight.
But, from the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold
Tomorrow, I'll be seven years old.
Seven kisses when I wake,
Seven candles on my cake!
