"Wild Child" is a track on the album The Soft Parade by the rock band The Doors written by singer Jim Morrison. It was released as a B-side of the group's seventh single "Touch Me" in December, 1968, preceding the release of The Soft Parade album by several months. While The Soft Parade is notable as the only Doors album featuring several songs with strings and horn, "Wild Child" has a harder guitar-driven sound similar to such songs as "Hello, I Love You" and "Roadhouse Blues". In the instrumental middle section, Morrison's spoken voice is heard saying: "An Ancient Lunatic reigns in the Trees of the Night", followed by his laughter. The song ends with the spoken line: "Do you Remember when we were in Africa?".
