Lyrics:
Verse
JIMMY DREAMS HE’S A CHILD TILL THE END
WHAT A JOY WHEN YOU ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND
THE WORLD’S SUCH A TOY
IF YOU’LL JUST STAY A BOY
YOU CAN SPIN IT AGAIN AND AGAIN

JIMMY FLIES WITH NO USE FOR DISGUISE
JUST ESCAPES USING MIRRORS AND CAPES
AND THE WORDS DO THE TRICK
THERE IS NO BIGGER KICK
THAN JUST RHYMING AGAIN AND AGAIN

Bridge
IT’S THE SOUND OF THE LOW TIDE,
THE SMELL OF THE RAIN
TRAVELIN’ ALONE
ON MY BOAT AND MY PLANE
TAKE IT ALL IN IT’S AS BIG AS IT SEEMS
COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS
REMEMBER YOUR DREAMS

Verse
JIMMY STARES TOWARD THE BRIGHT PLEIADES
IT’S SO STRANGE
WHAT HIS DISTANT EYE SEES
WHO KNOW WHY YOU START
RE-DISCOVERING YOUR HEART
BUT YOU DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN

THE SOUND OF THE LOW TIDE,
THE SMELL OF THE RAIN
TRAVELIN’ ALONE
ON MY BOAT AND MY PLANE
TAKE IT ALL IN IT’S AS BIG AS IT SEEMS
COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS
REMEMBER YOUR DREAMS

Verse
JIMMY STARES TOWARD THE BRIGHT PLEIADES
IT’S SO STRANGE
WHAT HIS DISTANT EYE SEES
WHO KNOWS WHY YOU START
RE-DISCOVERING YOUR HEART
BUT YOU DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN
THE WORLDS STILL A TOY
IF YOU JUST STAY A BOY
AND THAT’S WHY JIMMY DREAMS
