Like a star, booming in the sky

Nae spirit child could e’er say wi’ such Buddha brevity,
  Daddy, I can’t believe I’m real
  Like a star, booming in the sky, I watched him fly
  An exclamation of joy

  Me oh my!

  Ne’er pure child o’ creation could bett’r say
  Wi’ such nihilistic fantasy
  Watch me fly
  Like a butterfly fluttering by, I watched him fly

  Me oh my!

  Nae wan child could e’er say
  Wi’ such sweet an’ soulful simplicity
  Daddy, I can’t believe I’m real
  I’m like a star, booming in the sky

  Me oh my!

  But what is real?
  Don’t even try
  For truth is only in the eye
  Of the Watch me fly beholder

  Me oh my!
