Songtekst

SANDRA & ANDRES:

You've got your world
And I've got mine
And it's a shame
Two grown up worlds
That will never be the same

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
Running through the rain
Hand in hand
Across the meadow

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
In a wonderland
Where nothing's planned for tomorrow

You've got his ring
You've got his heart
You've got his baby
And better it's too late
To turn away
And start all over again
Oh no, don't tell me it's too late, baby

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
Running through the rain
Hand in hand
Across the meadow

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
In a wonderland, in a wonderland
Where nothing's planned for tomorrow

Ooh, how happy we would be
If only we
Were storybook children

BILLY VERA & JUDY CLAY:

You've got your world
And I've got mine
And it's a shame
Two grown up worlds
That will never be the same

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
Running through the rain
Hand in hand
Across the meadow

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
In a wonderland
Where nothing's planned for tomorrow

You've got his ring
You've got his heart
You've got his baby
And, Billy, it's too late
To turn away
And start all over again
Oh no, don't tell me it's too late, baby

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
Running through the rain
Hand in hand
Across the meadow
Oh, why, one more time

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
In a wonderland, in a wonderland
Where nothing's planned for tomorrow

Ooh, how happy we would be
If only we
Were storybook children

NANCY & LEE:

You've got your world
And I've got mine
And it's a shame
Two grown up worlds
That will never be the same

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
Running through the rain
Hand in hand
Across the meadow

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
In a wonderland
Where nothing's planned for tomorrow

You've got his ring
You've got his heart
You've got his baby
And it's too late
To turn away
And start again

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
Running through the rain
Hand in hand
Across the meadow

Why can't we be
Like storybook children
In a wonderland
Where nothing's planned for tomorrow

How happy we would be
If only we
Were storybook children
Storybook children
Storybook children

Songinformatie

Dit lied werd geschreven door Billy Vera en Chip Taylor en door Billy Vera & Judy Clay voor het eerst op de plaat gezet. Het was destijds een zeer controversieel nummer, want voor de eerste keer vormden een blanke man en een zwarte vrouw een duo. Daarom werd het niet uitgezonden op de Amerikaanse televisie. Om dit standpunt nog eens te benadrukken, werd het nummer pas op de televisie uitgezonden toen het door Nancy Sinatra en Lee Hazelwood gezongen werd.
