Peter Pan



I'd like to make a quantum leap and visit Bangladesh.
I'd like to get a good night's sleep and wake up feeling fresh.

I'd like to skip the daily grind and visit Isles of Greece.
I'd like to still my rambling mind and gain an easy peace.

I'd like to shun Freudian slips and visit Uruguay.
I'd like to form relationships and join a true allay.

I'd like to take a Turkish bath and visit Istanbul.
I'd like to walk a righteous path and unkind ways annul.

I'd like to develop panache and visit Panama.
I'd like to throw a festive bash and have a brouhaha.

I'd like to speak a foreign tongue and visit French Sudan.
I'd like to stay forever young and live like Peter Pan.
