hola, rojo, 'morning to you
you always helped me chase demons away
don't know what i'll do without you
so Pan is the name of the plane

second to the right
straight on 'til morning
that's where i'll be waiting
second to the right
straight on 'til morning

hola, tick-tock
my time is up
Pedro says
i will forget him in days
in my new life, no room for a lost boy
boys can be so dumb sometimes

second to the right
straight on 'til morning
that's where i'll be waiting
second to the right
straight on 'til morning
straight on 'til morning

kiss Pedro for me

    General Comment"Operation Peter Pan was an operation coordinated by the United States government, the Roman Catholic Church, and Cuban exiles in which over 14,000 children were brought from Cuba to the United States. It took place between December 26, 1960 and October 23, 1962. The operation was designed to transport the children of parents who opposed the Communist government, and was later expanded to include children of parents concerned by rumors that their children would be shipped to Soviet work camps."

    General CommentOperation Peter Pan spanned from 1960-62 where by over 14,000 children were sent away from their families in Cuba, some never to reunite again. PanAm flights took the children to Miami FL 'Never-Never Land' and the children became known as 'The Peter Pans.' I wrote this song for my daughter, and it is sung for all the daughters and mothers, fathers and brothers who felt this pain of separation all because of governments and their politics. -Tori Amos
