I never knew you could step out

And the whole world would be there to greet you

Full of fanfare and glory and fame

Then again, I didn’t know, because

I was born in a tea cup

 

I never knew you could touch people

By the mere touch of feelings from your heart

Thought word and deed in unison

Then again, I didn’t know, because

I was born in a tea cup

 

I never knew I could fly so high

As to kiss the skies and return back with rain

Fresh and cool with fantastic smell

Then again, I didn’t know, because

I was born in a tea cup

 

I never knew I could speak so well

Until I was on a platform bejeweled with curious onlookers

A stammer and a twitch of courage

Then again, I didn’t know, because

I was born in a tea cup

 

I never quite understood the talk

What everyone said, with experience as their backing

To know the hot stove and then to learn

Then again, I didn’t know, because

I was born in a tea cup
