Asleep in bed, late at night
I'm woken by a shining light
A quick glance out, what can it be?
A unicorn staring back at me.
Dash downstairs, run outside
'I've come to take you for a ride.'
She says her name is Candyfloss.
'You must come or you'll be cross!'
We are going to a fairytale
To find the long-lost nightingale
Her song has gone from Fairyland Park
All is gloom, all is dark.
The clowns have hidden her away
It's up to us to save the day
We help the fairies in their search
To put the bird back on her perch.
Nightingale found, frozen with fright
But we return her to the night
Her song again fills the air
Fairies happy, clowns despair.
'Candyfloss, things aren't what they seem.'
For I wake up, it's all a dream.
