Take my hand
We're off to never never land

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
Dreams of War, dreams of lies
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite, yeah!

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping you pillow tight
(Repeat Chorus Fill)
Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never-never land
