Sunset on an Ozark Mountain Lake.
When I drifted off to dreamland last,
The earthly cares from my mind were cast.
I skipped across the many stars,
Stopped and grabbed a nap on Mars.
Slid quickly down the Milky Way,
Oh what a grand and marvelous day.
I rocked in the curve of the quarter moon,
I could easily have stayed till noon.
How many stars I touched don't matter,
To reach the rings that circle Saturn.
It was a short hop to Venus if I tried,
Then there was colorful Jupiter nearby.
Using the stars as stepping stones,
I crossed the planets zone by zone.
This grand dreamland was easy to take,
I just couldn't make myself awake.
I wanted this dreamland to go on forever,
Just me and the stars and the planets together.
Now playing: "Wind Beneath My Wings"
