  1. Make Me A Wish

From the recording Jersey Stories Part 1

written 12/17/80-----
They'd have a PTA fair every year in Garwood and they had a booth that you could write your name and address on a slip of paper, put it in a helium balloon and hopefully someone from China or something would write you back saying they got your message-never happened.

Oh yea it's been driving me nuts that I messed up the first line which was supposed to be...
"When I was a child I'd look to the CLOUDS as rolling hills and mountains" NOT stars-figured I'd get it out there now...

Lyrics

Make Me A Wish

When I was a child I'd look to the clouds
as rolling hills and mountains
and there I'd wish that I could play
on inner fields and fountains
yes I could wander where ever my mind would roam

birds were my friends and freely we'd sail
on breezes from some other continent
I'd sail a balloon and wait for reply
trying to make corespondence
then I could wander wherever my mind could take me

and I'd make me a wish
that I could sail to the stars
making believe was never too hard
i'd make me a wish
that I would never grow old
making believe my pennies were gold
I'd make me a wish

then I could wander wherever my mind could take me

then I'd make me a wish
that I could sail to the stars
making believe was never too hard
i'd make me a wish
that I'd never grow old
making believe my pennies were gold
I'd make me a wish
