Like a child
You always landed on your feet
Running wild
Paid caution little mind
Playing in the middle of the streets
With all the time in the world
A world so wide
You could wander it for miles
Going where you’ve never been

But now
Deary, it’s the middle of the night!
And how
Shadows grow under the street lights in a
Strange town
With strangers all around
How can you be found?
If no one knows you in a strange town

If you could fly
Could you find your own way home?
Up so high
Over that old rainbow
But what about the great unknown?
You might find where the sidewalk ends
(Don’t go too far…)
Imagine your surprise
To land Where The Wild Things Are
Little lamb so far away from home
