Beyond the reach of reason
Is a magic land —
A land only children may enter.
Sometimes, even children
Need a helping hand
To find the center
It’s a wonderful world of maybe,
A wonderful world of song,
A place where pleasure waits in a toy,
And nothing ever goes wrong.
There is such a land, I know,
For I found it . . . long ago.
