I'm happy to say today
I'm going away to play
I'm going away, to play
To laugh and jump and shout
And tumble on a hillside
And sing with birds and wind
The sound the birds, the wind

Oh wouldn't you say ok
If I invited you
Oh wouldn't you say, ok
I'd act the host and say
Please crack another tube dear
I'll play the perfect fool
If it pleased you

Gone is the sandman
Gone into hiding
Here is the glad man
Happy and smiling
Maybe the madman
Knows where I am

When it's dark outside no one can hear me
All the children love they need not fear me

I'm happy to say today
I'm going away to play
I'm going away, to play
To laugh and jump and shout
And tumble on a hillside
And sing with birds and wind
The sound the birds, the wind

Oh wouldn't you say ok
If I invited you
Oh wouldn't you say, ok
I'd act the host and say
Please crack another tube dear
I'll play the perfect fool
If it pleased you

Gone is the sandman
Gone into hiding
Here is the glad man
Happy and smiling
Maybe the madman
Knows where I am

Gone is the sandman
Gone into hiding
Here is the glad man
Happy and smiling
Maybe the madman
Knows where I am

Gone is the sandman
Gone into hiding
