Childproof

my love, my little luisa bear
there's danger, danger everywhere
on the streets and on the stairs
in the water, in the air

before anyone gets hurt
a little boy, a little girl
your mom and i've decided to
childproof the whole wide world

hide every hazard north and south
fix every fist, zip every mouth
lock up all the lust and lies
and keep the grief far from your eyes

before you go and get hurt
my sweetheart, my little girl
your mom and i've decided to
childproof the whole wide world

some may claim it's overkill
coverin' every ocean, levelin' every hill
giving up so much to protect one kid
but a world without her
i've no use for it

it may be foolish, or futile
boys will be boys, worlds will be wild
but i hope for a little while
they embrace you like a child

like a healthy little girl
like a happy little girl
whose mom and i have tried to
childproof the whole wide world
childproof the whole wide world
