There came a time
In the swimming pool
When I took off the floats
And he swam from my arms
Frantically paddling to the side
Go on, I said, you're safe

I ran along behind the bike
My hand steadying the saddle
I gave a push and stopped
As he pedalled on down the path
Go on, I said, that's right

The documentation has been checked;
He heads for the departure lounge,
Walking tall;
He lifts his arm to wave
Go on, I think, fly away
