Goodbye to the Little Prince



they brought the toys for little boys
they brought the checkers and the sword
time for goodbyes, we don't know why
say goodbye to the Little Prince

in his ship he is a trip
making mischief on the seas, if you please
a pirate fierce, eyes that pierce
he is the captain of all that he sees
across the seven seas
say goodbye to the Little Prince

but how will i get home dear mother?
how will i grow to be old?
i will laugh and sing and plunder
hold me mother, i'm so cold
please hold me mother
please hold me mother

i will stand upon the deck
i will climb to the crow's nest
i will skirt the rocky shores
and still have time to do the chores
(please don't cry when i die
please don't cry don't ask me why)

i'll be a man, i'll rule the land
i will be strong and wise and fair
the day will come when i will run
i will fly into the air
(watch me go, spread my wings
see just what my talons bring)

but how will i get home dear mother?
how will i grow to be old?
i will laugh and sing and plunder
hold me mother, i'm so cold
please hold me mother
please hold me mother

a little prince waves goodbye
he can no longer tell you why
a little prince among the stars
building castles up on mars
now i lay me down to sleep
a little prince i pray to keep
a little prince i pray to keep
says goodbye

they brought the toys for little boys
they brought the checkers and the sword
time for goodbyes, we don't know why
say goodbye to the Little Prince

in his ship he is a trip
making mischief on the seas, if you please
a pirate fierce, eyes that pierce
he is the captain of all that he sees
across the seven seas
say goodbye to the Little Prince

but how will i get home dear mother?
how will i grow to be old?
i will laugh and sing and plunder
hold me mother, i'm so cold
please hold me mother
please hold me mother
(please don't cry when i die
please don't cry don't ask me why)

for peter
