Smooth little ditty.
I have a Travel Guide
(In the rhythm of "La dee da dee darrr… da dee da dee darr… la dee da dee da dee darrr)

Outside is drab and grey but that’s okay because my mind is far away.
I’m in gay Paree with Natalie and we’re sipping on fine champagne.
But with a flick of the book I can stop on another page - and with this hop across the border to a senorita in sunny Spain.

Because I have a travel guide and so if I shut my eyes I’ll have a ticket to ride from London to Pompeii, and then back again through Honolulu where I’ll hope to meet some more delightful friends.

I say “das vidanya” to Tatiana and again I’m on my way… going from Moscow to the Asian border upon a Trans Siberian choo-choo train. Then time for a cup of tea and it's back to page one hundred and three - where I'll meet little Miss Ling Sing from Beijing.

Because I have a travel guide and so if I shut my eyes I’ll have a ticket to ride from London to Pompeii, and then back again through Honolulu where I’ll hope to meet some more delightful friends.

And maybe tomorrow I'll look for a reference book on the stars and galaxies from far away. Then I can talk to Yuri Gagarin about the most beautiful of martians from beyond the Milky Way.

La dee da dee darrr… Da dee da dee darr… La dee da dee da dee darrr... and so if I shut my eyes I’ll have a ticket to ride wherever my guide might say!
