Al Stewart's, "(A Child's View of) The Eisenhower Years"
Misheard Lyrics:
It's a child's view of the eyes of Howard Hughes
Original Lyrics:
It's a child's view of the Eisenhower years
Given Stewart's propensity for historical and often eccentric material, the reference to Howard Hughes almost made sense to me.
