The Weirdest Thing

One day I saw
just the weirdest thing

Down a dirt road
as I was walking

And then I came
upon a little clearing

Where the voices of
children I began hearing

As the sound of
them I was nearing

They seemed so sweet
to my heart endearing

Until I could hear
what they were singing

The words I heard
the wind was bringing

“Ring around the bunny
you look so funny!”

Then down to them
I just began running

For all those children
my hand was gunning

Just then the bunny
thanked me for coming

And my minded reeled
as it was numbing

“This can’t be real!”
my thoughts were screaming

That’s when I woke up
thank God I was dreaming!

Run Little Darlin’

Just run my little darlin’
right into my open arms
I’ll swoop you off to Neverland
with all its magic charms

When to there with Tinkerbell
we will go to fly
up higher and higher
into the clear blue sky

We’ll play with Peter Pan
and all of the lost  boys
as Wendy bring us out
some of all their toys

We’ll dance with the indians
then with the mermaids swim
for there we can do anything
we fancy with each whim

Just imagine any kind of food
that we dearly love to eat
as it appears before our eyes
and we take our dinner seat

When the nighttime rolls in
there are hammocks in the trees
where we’re gently rocked to sleep
by the cool summer breeze

And as you drift to sleep
in your real room and bed
sweet dreams of all these things
will be running through your head.
