FOR THE FIRST TIME


You have to learn to crawl and then you learn to walk
You learn to say a word and then you learn to talk
So, on that special day you first walk ‘cross the floor
You were doing something wonderful you’ve never done before

Yes, for the first time, for the first time
Yesterday, you couldn’t do it
Pretty soon, there’s nothing to it
For the first time, for the first time
New things can happen every day

As you start growing up, you learn to cross the street
You learn to tie your shoe or use a fork to eat
One day you’ll walk alone down to the grocery store
Each day you do a new thing that you’ve never done before

Yes, for the first time, for the first time
Yesterday, you couldn’t do it
Pretty soon, there’s nothing to it
For the first time, for the first time
New things can happen every day

One day you’ll be grown up, yes, you just wait and see
That you’ll find lots of cookies for your family
You’ll be a mom or dad and then you’ll sit and talk
Or watch your little children as they learn to crawl or walk

Yes, for the first time, for the first time
Yesterday, you couldn’t do it
Pretty soon, there’s nothing to it
For the first time, for the first time
New things can happen every day

Yes, new things can happen every day
