From the ongoing collection, "Songs to Sing at Children"


You can be an astronaut
You can be a big robot
You can be a cop or not
The choice is up to you

You've got a special place inside
Where nothing is too strange to hide
Rocks can talk

"They can?"

Nope! I lied!
And so can you when you choose to 'cause

You can use your imagination
Swing away cause you can't miss
You can use your imagination
To come up with cool thoughts like this:

a worm with wings


If you could look within your mind
What's the weirdest thing you'd find?
A picture of some ham that's signed,
"All the best, Some Ham"

Use it to explore the deep
Use it to name your horse Phillipe
"Ewes" is another way to say "sheep"
Now that power's in your hands (power's in your hands)

You can be a team of cars and planes
from outer space
And when there's danger
they transform into

* * *carrots and broccoli* * *

You can use your imagination
You don't need to waste a wish
You can use your imagination
To come up with cool thoughts like thish:

a bowling ball driving a dump truck


You can soar on the wings of a flightless bird
You can snore louder than anyone has ever heard

[seismic snore]

Wake up!

(You can... use your... imagination)

You can use your imagination
Possibilities are possible!
You can use your imagination
To come up with cool thoughts like this:

a language that only uses the letters 'D' and 'P', and when they say, "D d d d d d pp d ddd pppp d p d p d p d ddd pppp p pppp p dd p p p p p," they're saying:

You can use your imagination
The song is done
that's all there is
But you can use your imagination
to come up with cool songs
(come up with cool songs)
come up with cool songs! like! this!
