APED: "way over yonder"

Way over yonder,
right past that hill,
is where we can wander
and never sit still.
We'll drink of the summer
and eat of the moon
and bed down in wonder
but never too soon.
And we'll sing all the songs
and we'll tell all the lies
we'll do everything wrong
but no one ever cries.
And we'll dance till we drop
and we'll laugh where we fall
when we land with a plop
for it won't hurt at all.
And the dreams are all dreams
and the real is all real
and it's just what it seems
and it's just what it feels.

It's way over yonder, and that's all I know.
You can wait here, if you want. Me, I'll go.
