Once upon a dream, I walked through the wildwood and what did I see?
It was a unicorn with his horn stuck in a tree,
Crying, 'Someone, please help me before it's too late!'
I hollered, 'I'll free you!'
He hollered back, 'Wait...
How much will it hurt? How long will it take?
Are you sure that my horn will not scratch,
bend or break?
How hard will you pull? How much must I pay?
Must you do it right now or is Wednesday OK?
Have you done this before? Do you have the right tools
Have you graduated from horn-savin' school?
Do you promise that you will not damage the tree?
Should I close my eyes? Should I sit down or stand?
Do you have insurance? Have you washed your hands?
And after you free me, what then?
Can you guarantee I won't get stuck again?
Tell me when, tell me how,
Tell me why, tell me where... '
I guess that he's still sittin' there.
