"Welcome To The Pleasuredome" as written by and Johnson Gill....
The world is my oyster,
Ha ha ha ha ha

Life goes on day after day
Who-ha who-ha
Who-ha who-ha

Ha, the animals are winding me up
The jungle call
The jungle call
Who-ha who-ha who-ha who-ha
In Xanadu did Kublai Khan
A pleasuredome erect
Moving on keep moving on-yeah
Moving at one million miles an hour
Using my power
I sell it by the hour
I have it so I market it
You really can't afford it-yeah
Really can't afford it

Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top
Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top

There goes a supernova
What a pushover-yeah
There goes a supernova
What a pushover

We're a long way from home
Welcome to the Pleasuredome
On our way home
Going home where lovers roam
Long way from home
Welcome to the Pleasuredome

Moving on Keep moving on
I will give you diamonds by the shower
Love your body even when it's old
Do it just as only I can do it
And never ever doing what I'm told

Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top
Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top

There goes a supernova
What a pushover-yeah
There goes a supernova
What a pushover

We're a long way from home
Welcome to the pleasuredome
On our way home
Going home where lovers roam
Welcome to the pleasuredome

Keep moving on
Got to reach the top
Don't stop
Pay love and life-oh my
Keep moving on
On again-yeah

Shooting stars never stop
Shooting stars never stop

Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top
There goes a supernova
What a pushover

Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top
There goes a supernova
What a pushover

Who-ha who-ha
Welcome to the pleasuredome
Who-ha who-ha
Going home where lovers roam
Welcome to the pleasuredome

    General CommentActually, that the pleasure dome reference in this is from a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, which is trippy and illegedly inspired by a morphene (?) dream. So... You're English teacher is making a drug reference, too.

    Or he's just calling your class surreal, which would be my guess.
