Hey goosey goosey
I believe it's for having fun
Hey goosey goosey
I believe it's for everyone.

One red morning
With no warning
Life comes crashing in
To wake you early with it's golden din.

One blue evening
Cruelly leaving
It goes breezing out
The very second that you figure it out
What it's all for.

Everybody has a magic lantern
Everybody has an inner eye
Everybody has a magic carpet
Seems a shame if you don't let it fly
Tell you why

Hey goosey goosey...

Some bright daytime
Worker's playtime
You get country-bound
Pick your girl up
So you're all pinned down

Some dark nighttime
Final frighttime
As the reaper knocks
The wisdom of the ancients in a box
But it's too late

Everybody has a magic lantern...

Hey goosey goosey...

Yes I do
