A long time ago some friends and I,
we got some money together and we bought a boat.
It wasn't quite a bonny boat,
didn't really matter it was a very fine sail boat.
But it didn't really float so we worked and we worked,
and we worked and we worked and we worked
and we patched it up.
And it took us right around two years,
to fix it up so we could sail it out to sea.

Clap your hands, move your feet,
sing a new song find the beat.
Grab your girl, grab your guy,
Reach your hands up and shake the sky.

So we sailed our boat out west to see
if we could find out if the world was truly flat.
But we kept on going around and around,
and around and around and around
and around we went.
But the storm came up as we sailed for seven days
and seven nights til' we reached the moon.
So we jumped from shooting start to shooting star
to shooting star to shooting star.

And we ended up in the ol' Pacific,
twenty and four miles from our home sweet home.
So went on home to tell all the townspeople
of the places we had seen.
But we really could not describe such a beautiful sight
as we looked up into the night sky.
So we told them all to look at the moon and the stars
with open eyes and open dreams.
