A can of peas sails the Seven Seas
The winds of change tinkle in the trees.
A silent wish sails the Seven Seas
The winds of change whisper in the trees.
For a sparrow's tooth, no one seems forlorn
Peace comes too fast when a child is born.
For a spell or two no one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born.
You've got your feet all on solid ground.
You got to feel you're on solid ground.
