Don't be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
And take off your shoes and socks, and run you.
Run through the meadow and scare up the milking cows
Run down the beach kicking clouds of sand.
Walk a windy weather day, feel your face blow away
Stop and listen: Love you.
Roll like a circus clown, put away your circus frown
Ride on a roller coaster upside down Waltzing Matilda,
Carey loves a kinkatchoo, Joey catch a kangaroo: hug you.
Dandylion, milkweed, silky on a sunny sky
Reach out and hitch a ride and float on by.
Balloons down below catching colors of the rainbow
Red, blue and yellow-green: I love you.
Bicycles, tricycles, ice cream candy.
Lollypops, popsicles, licorice sticks
Solomon Grundy, Raggedy Andy,
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, home free.
Cowboys and Indians, puppydogs and sandpails
Beachballs and baseballs and basketballs, too.
I love forget-me-nots, fluffernutters, sugarpops
I'll hug you and kiss you and love you
La, la, la...
