Here they come, let’s go down,
swinging the song under the sun’s rays.
Step the best, the only place in town
to run around in the Street of Days.
See this as you might, you cannot be still

and if you discover it, you might find something worth seeing.
Wander just beyond the garden, and through thick boughs of ivy
and you’ll be able to watch the race of the little winged beings.
Just beyond the joy and laughter of night,
feet getting wet in the cool ocean spray.
You stand there alone, under the light,
looking above for a Snowstar display.
You smell the air, and hold tight to my chest.
Do not worry about the silver ladle,
I know you are tired, so go on and rest,
in the comfort of a fox’s sweet cradle.
