One night when I was fast asleep,
Two eyes at my window peeped.
Turning, I rubbed my eyes and stared
There was an alien stood out there!
With eyes like spirals of pink and yellow
Waving, he smiled and said, 'Hello.'
Next I knew I was outside
Where all my friends above cried
'Come join us, we're on a trip
Aboard the alien's flying ship!
We're off to visit a planet of candy.'
'Take me with you!' I yelled to Andy.
The planet was an amazing place,
Happiness lit up everyone's face.
Fountains of chocolate, white and brown
Which we drank with great abound
Andy ate the marshmallow trees
And I gobbled up everything I could see.
But at last it was time to go,
The jets on the spaceship splutter and blow
With pockets full of jellybeans
And heads full of wondrous scenes
To Earth, to bed, I fell fast asleep
Then suddenly the alarm clock bleeped!
