In Search Of Peter Pan

(Incorporating *When You Wish Upon A Star)

It's been such a long week,
So much crying.
I no longer see a future.
I've been told, when I get older
That I'll understand it all,
But I'm not sure if I want to.

Running into her arms,
At the school gates
She whispers that I'm a poor kid,
And granny takes me on her knee,
She tells me I'm too sensitive,
She makes me sad.
She makes me feel like an old man.


They took the game right out of it,
They took the game right out of it.

When, When I am a man,
I will be an astronaut,
And find Peter Pan,
Second Star on the right
Straight on 'til morning.

Dennis loves to look in the mirror,
He tells me that he is beautiful,
So I look too, and what Do I see?
My eyes are full,
But my face is empty.
He's got a photo,
Of his hero,
He keeps it under his pillow,
But I've got a pin-up from a newspaper,
Of Peter Pan.
I found it in a locket, I hide it in my pocket.


* When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are.
When you wish upon a star,
Your dreams come true.
