Sometimes I dream that I'm floating in space
And planting a flag on the moon.
I'm hailed as a hero, an inspiration to all
And morning time comes far too soon.
Sometimes I dream that I'm kicking a ball
Up, up into the sky.
Maybe I'll set a new world record
'Cause it went so high!
Sometimes I dream I'm a knight in grey armour
Astride a magnificent white horse.
Galloping far to save damsels in distress
And to battle some dragons, of course!
Sometimes I dream that I'm down underwater
Exploring the ways of the deep.
I immerse myself in this watery world
Until my alarm goes, Beep! Beep!
Sometimes I have a different kind of dream
A nightmare, dark and scary.
The grinning faces that haunt my sleep
Are certainly no fairy!
Most of the time, I don't want to wake up
And see my room's ceiling overhead.
But sometimes, when leering clowns leap and chatter
I'm quite glad for my lovely warm bed!
