And if I say to you tomorrow
Take my hand child come with me.
It's to a castle I will take you
Where what's to be they say will be.

Catch the wind see us spin
Sail away leave today
Way up high in the sky.
But the wind won't blow
You really shouldn't go
It only goes to show
That you will be mine
By takin' our time. Ooh!

And if you say to me tomorrow
Oh what fun it all would be,
Then what's to stop us, pretty baby,
But what is and what should never be.

Catch the wind see us spin
Sail away leave today
Way up high in the sky.
But the wind won't blow
You really shouldn't go
It only goes to show
That you will be mine
By takin' our time. Ooh!

So if you wake up with the sunrise,
And all your dreams are still as new,
And happiness is what you need so bad,
Girl, the answer lies with you, yeah.

Catch the wind see us spin
Sail away leave today
Way up high in the sky.
But the wind won't blow
You really shouldn't go
It only goes to show
That you will be mine
By takin' our time. Ooh!

Hey, oh
Oh the wind won't blow and we really shouldn't go
And it only goes to show-ow-ow.
Catch the wind, we're gonna see it spin
We're gonna sail, little girl
Do do do, bop bop a do-oh
My my my my my my yeah
Everybody I know seems to know me well
But does anybody know I'm gonna move like hell
But they're never gonna know 'cause I move like hell.
(pick one...heh)
