Child in Time, lyrics
Sweet child in time, you'll see the line
Line that's drawn between good and bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying, ooh taking toll
If you've been bad - Oh Lord I bet you have
And you've not been hit oh by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes, aahaouho bow your head
Wait for the ricochet

Sweet child in time, you'll see the line
Line that's drawn between good and bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying, mm taking toll
If you've been bad - Lord I bet you have
And you've not been hit oh by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes, aahaao bow your head
Wait for the ricochet
Child in Time, notes and meaning

Come dichiarato dal cantante Ian Gillan, il giro di accordi di "Child in Time" è per buona parte tratto dalla canzone "Bombay Calling" del gruppo americano "It's a Beautiful Day".

Per quanto riguarda il testo della canzone, si ispira alla Guerra Fredda e in particolare alla allora recente Guerra del Vietnam.
