The Second Star to the Right
The second star to the right
Shines in the night for you
To tell you that the dreams you plan
Really can come true

The second star to the right
Shines with a light that's rare
And if it's Never Land you need
It's light will lead you there

Twinkle, twinkle little star
So I'll know where you are
Gleaming in the skies above
Lead me to the land we dream of

And when our journey is through
Each time we say "Goodnight"
We'll thank the little star that shines
The second from the right


You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!
Think of a wonderful thought
Any merry little thought
Think of Christmas, think of snow
Think of sleigh bells-Off you go!
Like a reindeer in the sky
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!

Think of the happiest things
It's the same as having wings
Take the path that moonbeams make
If the moon is still awake
You'll see him wink his eye
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!

Up you go with a high and ho to the stars
Beyond the blue!
There's a Never land waiting for you
Where all your happy dreams come true
Every dream that you wish will come true

When there's a smile in your heart
There's no better time to start
Think of all the joy you'll find
When you leave the world behind!br> And bid your cares goodbye!
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!

Repeat


Following the Leader
Following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader
Wherever he may go
Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle ee do tee day
Tee dum, tee dee it's part of the game we play
Tee dum, tee dee, the words are easy to say
Just a teedle ee dum ee do tee day

Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle ee do tee dum
We're one for all, and all of us out for fun
We march, in line, and follow the other one
With a teedle ee do a teedle ee do tee dum

Following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader
Wherever he may go
We're out to fight the Injuns, the Injuns
The Injuns
We're out to fight the Injuns
Because he told us so

Tee dum, tee dee a teedle ee do tee day
We march along and these are the words we say:
Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle deelde deeay
Oh, a teedle ee dum a teedle ee do tee day
Oh, a teedle ee dum a teedle ee do tee day


A Pirate's Life
Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
A-rovin' over the sea
Give me a career
As a buccaneer
It's the life of a pirate for me
Ohh, the life of a pirate for me

Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
They never bury yer bones
But when it's all over
A jolly sea rover
Drops in on his friend Davy Jones
Ohh, his very good friend Davy Jones


Your Mother and Mine
Well, a mother, a real mother
Is the most wonderful person in the world

She's the angel voice that bids you goodnight
Kisses your cheek, whispers, "Sleep tight."

Your mother and mine
Your mother and mine

The helping hand that guides you along
Whether you're right, whether you're wrong

Your mother and mine
Your mother and mine

What makes mothers all that they are?
Might as well ask, "What makes a star?"

Ask your heart to tell you her worth
Your heart will say, "Heaven on Earth."
Another word for divine
Your mother and mine


What Made the Red Man Red?
Why does he ask you, "How?"
Why does he ask you, "How?"
Once the Injun didn't know
All the things that he know now
But the Injun, he sure learn a lot
And it's all from asking, "How?"

Hana Mana Ganda
Hana Mana Ganda
We translate for you
Hana means what mana means
And ganda means that too

When did he first say, "Ugh!"
When did he first say, "Ugh!"
In the Injun book it say
When the first brave married squaw
He gave out with a big ugh
When he saw his Mother-in-Law

What made the red man red?
What made the red man red?
Let's go back a million years
To the very first Injun prince
He kissed a maid and start to blush
And we've all been blushin' since

You've got it from the headman
The real true story of the red man
No matter what's been written or said
Now you know why the red man's red!


Never Smile at a Crocidile
Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin

Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile

You may very well be well bred
Lots of etiquette in your head
But there's always some special case, time or place
To forget etiquette

For instance:
Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin

Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile
