Close your eyes
and rest for a while
and soon you will smile
remember the past
but do not dwell in it
for the past may trap us inside

Close your eyes
and count too three
and soon all the troubles will disappear
and as soon as you count again
all the magic will appear

Shut your eyes
and smile some more
for all the magic will forevermore
be around us
from today till it’s no more

Smile and smile again
and smile for you will play
with your silver and gold
and the ‘elow will smile too

Run and play
smile and cry
that the world
the world is mad
this time and time alone
will be the fundamentals
of the forever more

So live and laugh
cry and pout that the magic
will never…
run out.
