I told the birds
to sing me to sleep
And I told the moon
to watch over me
And I fell asleep
so very gently
My dreams felt like
God's own fantasy
And then the morning light
pulled my dreams aside
I was wide awake and I
heard a voice that cried
"Wake up, wake up!
This day's not waiting for you
Wake up, wake up my love!
I know, I know
dreams often feel better than life
but you cannot hide."
So I got out, took on the sunlight (?)
My cat was asleep
'cos she danced all night
On the rooftops
and the backyards
with shining eyes and soundless paws
And she sang
"Life is beautiful,
don't you see?
Life is beautiful,
come with me.
Life is beautiful when you dance.
Come and dance with me now,
come and dance with me,
we're gonna dance
all night long
And then we'll sing the dancing song
we're gonna sing the dancing song."
And then the wind will be singing with us, and
then the stars will dancing with us
and the moon will be laughing with us
and all the night will be happy with us.

    General CommentAll helpfully perfect, except "So I got out, took on the sunlight"... it's actually "So I got up, to welcome the sunlight"

    I am not going to pretend that the meaning of this song needs analysing. This woman has a beautiful life and a dancing cat. Laaaa....
