Tied my finger to the string of a heart-shaped balloon and floated over the trees.
A skit tat-a-tat bomb boodle mack dee…that’s the music, that’s the music in me.
Rode a rainbow to a meadow and lay in a sea of soft clover.
Blew the head off a dandelion nearly two city streets over.
Set sail in an upside down umbrella wearing stripped trouser socks.
Directed 5:00 o’clock traffic with the ornate hands of an old coo-coo clock.
Left my mark in the sky like a fast moving sparkler on the 4th of July,
And my cares in the stares of the people passing by.
Defied the laws of physics with a flip of the wrist.
Made my way through the world with a wink and a twist.
Changing direction like the compass of a captain who is lost at sea.
Hum along won’t you…That’s the music in me.
