La, la, la

Wonder boy, life's just begun
Turn your sorrow into wonder
Dream alone, don't sigh, don't groan
Life is only what you wonder

Day is as light as your brightest dreams
Night is as dark as you feel it ought to be
Time is as fast as the slowest thing
Life is only

Wonder boy, wonder boy

Everybody is looking for the sun
People strain their eyes to see
But I see you and you see me
And ain't that wonder?

Wonder boy, some mother's son
Life is full of work and [unverified]
Easy go, life is not real
Life is only what you conjure

Wonder boy, and the world is joy
Every single day it's the real McCoy

Wonder boy

Everybody is looking for the sun
People strain their eyes to see
But I see you and you see me
And ain't that wonder?

Wonder boy, some mother's son
Turn your sorrow into wonder
Dream alone, go have your fun
Life is only, life is only, life is only
