I said good night
To the moon.
I said good night
To the mush.
A red balloon,
And a great green room,
And a brush.

Look at all the waves.
Been stuck here for days and days.
The ship you made
With your magical ways
And your love.

I was born in a little white blanket.
I was born in the middle of a mountaintop.

Que sera, sera --
Whatever will be will be.
The future belongs to me.
I belong to you.

If the seas get,
They get too rough.
And the going gets,
The going gets tough.
Know you'll be there for me.
Yeah, you'll always be --
That's enough.

You've got so much love.

    General CommentIn the third verse, it should be:

    . . .
    Que sera sera
    Whatever will be, will be
    The future belongs to me
    And I belong to you
    . . .

    'Que sera sera' translates to the line the proceeds it.

    This song makes me nostalgic for childhood ('Goodnight Moon' was a favorite of mine) but it sounds like a love song to me!

    General CommentFourth verse is actually:

    ...
    If the seas get, they get too rough,
    when the going gets, the going gets tough.
    I know you'll be there for me,
    yeah, you'll always be,
    and that's enough.
    ...

    Also, minor, but fourth line, first verse shouldn't have an "and" at the beginning.
