lyrics

fly across the garden
touching down in the dirt
a spaceship built of tin cans
some cardboard and a business shirt
a tree branch fires a laser
a spaceman falls down dead
the killer thinks it’s over but
the dead man rises up instead

knock me out
put me away
scream and shout
let the children play

locked inside a dungeon
it’s under coco’s bed
the madman’s ax is sharpened
you best be careful don’t you lose your head
escape by helicopter
it’s powered by balloon
you’ve got to flush the toiled
if you want to launch the flying brooms

knock me out
put me away
scream and shout
let the children play

the end of pretend is the birth of old age
can you remember the freedom of play?

yes i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel

now you’re rocking onstage
tennis rackets as guitars
never have to act your own age
‘cause tennis shoes will take you far
turn up the record player
and jump around to the sound
words come before your mouth moves
the music knocks you upside down
as the curtains falling down to the ground
can you hear the sound of the sound
in imagination the truth is found

knock me out
put me away
scream and shout
let the children play

yes i feel it, i like it
feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel it, i like it
i feel
