Subject(s): Dreams; Nightmares

Some fine sunny day
In warm summer weather,
We'll take a joy-ride
Upon a gay feather.

We'll sail to the clouds
That are misty and white,
And there we will stay
For a day and a night.

We'll chase the Great Bear
Down the white Milky Way;
Then have a good time
Just as long as we stay.

We'll dance all about
Like a nice old skipper
And take a good drink
From out the Big Dipper.

There's nothing within
Save rain water pure.
It will not harm us;
Of that I'm quite sure.

We'll pick a few stars --
Golden daisies in bloom,
And try to shake hands
With the Man in the Moon.

We'll find the North star,
Always steadfast and true,
And throw her a kiss:
That is what we will do.

We'll coast on the rainbow,
Laugh long at the sun,
And if it should thunder,
Start home on the run.

If we get quite tired
(I know that it's far),
We will thumb a ride home
On a bright shooting star.
