The Lyrics

Chorus:
Auntie Em, where's that gal named Dorothy been?
Could it be she had to spread her wings and fly?
She left behind a witch and gave her slippers three quick clicks
Cause "there's no place like home" I heard her sigh

She's a young girl and her Auntie Em has raised her
All her folks in Kansas love and praise her
Cause she walks on yellow brick roads in her sleep
And wakes up with some insights that are deep

Little Toto went with her to Land of Oz
Met a man with straw and one with paws
And a man of tin was looking for some parts
By and by, he found himself a heart

Auntie Em, where's that gal named Dorothy been?
What a movie, it was made in '39
And did I her you say it is still around today
A movie that endures the test of time

(Repeat chorus)

"Made in '39" and probably due for another sequel or remake, which will be unable to recapture the magic of the original. Well done, Royce.
