Babies are born in the circle of the sun,

In the circle of the sun on birthing day.

In the circle of the sun on birthing day.

Babies learn to talk...on talking day.

Babies learn to love...on loving day.

And babies learn to talk,

And babies learn to love,

In the circle of the sun on loving day.
