Take me away, for a year and day,
take me away and afar,
take me away from here that's near
to where the wild things are.
I'll shout "be still," enforce my will,
I'll rule a mighty reign,
and when it's done being raucous fun
I'll come back home again.
I'm going away for a year and a day,
I'm going away, anew,
I'm going away, and when I'm all done,
I'll come back home to you.
