"The Land Of Make Believe" as written by Andy Hill and Peter John Sinfield....
Stars in your eyes, little one
Where do you go to dream
To a place, we all know
The land of make believe

Shadows, tapping at your window
Ghostly voices whisper will you come and play
Not for all the tea in China
Or the corn in Carolina
Never, never ever
They're running after you babe

Run for the sun, little one
You're an outlaw once again
Time to change, Superman
He'll be with us while he can
In the land of make believe

Something nasty in your garden's waiting
Patiently, till it can have your heart
Try to go but it won't let you
Don't you know it's out to get you running
Keep on running
They're running after you babe

Run for the sun, little one
You're an outlaw once again
Time to change, Superman
He'll be with us while he can
In the land of make believe

Your world is turning
From night to day
Your dream is burning far, far away

Into the blue
You and I
To the circus in the sky
Captain Kids
On the sand
With the treasure close at hand
In the land of make believe

In the land of make believe

Run for the sun, little one
You're an outlaw once again
Time to change, Superman
He'll be with us while he can
In the land of make believe

Run for the sun, little one
You're an outlaw once again
Time to change, Superman
He'll be with us while he can
In the land of make believe

I've got a friend who comes to tea
And no-one else can see but me
He came today
But had to go
To visit you
You never know

    General CommentBack in the day, I remember my older brother and sister owning this record. The single sleeve had the lyrics, and this was the first song that I remember reading the words, thinking about the story behind them and singing along...

    From memory I soon moved on to Adam and the Ants (the album had lyrics for every song! Although my sister had destroyed a few words when she was cutting out the Adam pictures :-).

    25 years later and I'm reading the lyrics on this website, mad.

    [And if that's an embarrasing admision, my first actual record purchase was Joe Dolce. This explains a lot.]
