NeverlandNEVER NEVER LAND
Second star to the right,
This is the path
And then straight on til morning,
Then you find the road yourself,
It leads to Neverland.*
Second star to the right points the way
Then it’s straight on ‘till the break of day
The road begins wherever you may stand
And it leads you to never never land
Maybe this will seem strange to you,
But rationality
Got you carried away
And now you're almost convinced that
Neverland cannot exist.
And it seems just a little bit strange
There’s no logic to convince you or explain
But reason slips right through your hands
For there can’t be a never never land
And thinking about it, what madness,
It's a fairytale, it's only fantasy
And he who is wise, who is mature knows it:
It cannot exist in reality!....
And all the grownups call it fantasy
An island in the sky can never be
Only dreamers would ever raise their sails
And set a course towards a fairy tale
I agree with you,
A land doesn't exist
Where there are neither saints nor heroes.
And if there are not thieves,
If there is never war,
Maybe it's just the island
That's not there... that's not there.
And we all agree
Such a land cannot be
With no liars, deceivers, or thieves
Where there’s no need for war
No saints or heroes to adore
It really is a never never land, Never land
And it's not an invention
And not even a play on words,
If you believe it, it's enough because
Then you find the road yourself.
It’s not a play on words, or an invention
It’s not a great misapprehension
For you need only to believe
Just nd the road and follow where it leads
I agree with you,
No thieves and police,
But what kind of island is it?^
No hate and violence
Neither soldiers nor weapons,
Maybe it's just the island
That's not there... that's not there.
Yes I agree with you
It sounds too good to be true
No cops, no robbers, no law
And there’s no need to run
Living under the gun
Maybe that is never never land, Never land
Second star to the right,
This is the path
And then straight on til morning,
You can't miss it because
That is Neverland.
Second star to the right points the way
Then it’s straight on ‘till the break of day
You can’t go wrong, for now you understand
That this is your never never land
And they tease you
If you continue to look for it,
But don't you give up because
He who has already given up
And laughs at you behind your back,
Is perhaps even crazier than you.
Let them tease, let them taunt
Let them say what they want
But don’t give up.
Just keep pushing through
They who’ve gone off the track
And laugh behind your back
Just might be crazier than you
