Dodging lions, and a-wasting time,

Oh those mighty kings of the jungle, i could hardly stand to see'em

Train wheels a-running thru the back of my memory,
E a d
When i ran on a hilltop following a pack of wild geese,
A d a
Someday everything is gonna sound like a rhapsody

On a plane ride so bumby that i almost cried,

Clergy men in uniform, and young girls pulling mussels,

Someday, it's gonna be different, when i paint my masterpiece.
