  • Lyrics: BEAUTIFUL CHILD: Up in Inwood park Maybe 50 yards from the parkway On a bed of leaves We lay down a blanket That's where my child was conceived It was late indian summer The weather was mild Beautiful child, beautiful child Oh... Beautiful child, beautiful child So what you give away Is given back to you Plus it's multiplied All we ever need to be told is Everything will be alright I lifted him up from the rushes And gave my thanks to the river Nile For my beautiful child , beautiful child Oh... Beautiful child, beautiful child All up and down the streets of my soul church bells rang in the middle of Times Square, I swear the angels sang To welcome this messenger of love The statue of mary smiled On my beautiful child, beautiful child Oh... Beautiful child, beautiful child
