On the other side of the moon,
Ever so far,
Beyond the last little star,
Theres a land, I know,
where the good songs go,
Where its always afternoon;
And snug in a haven of peace and rest,
Lie the dear old songs that we love the best.
Its a land of flowers
And April showers
With sunshine in between,
With roses blowing and rivers flowing,
Mid rushes growing green;
Where no one hurries
And no one worries
And life runs calm and slow:
And I wish some day I could find my way
To the land where the good songs go.
Dear old songs forgotten too soon
They had their day,
And then we threw them away;
And without a sigh we would pass them by,
For some other, newer tune.
So off to a happier home they flew,
Where theyre always loved and theyre always new.
Its a land of flowers...
