Party On The Clouds

When it’s storming outside
And you hear loud thunder
Don’t be scared little one
But it’s okay to wonder.

Think as if there’s a party
And clouds are playing drums
Don’t worry about a thing
When you hear those dum-dums!

Yes, it’s big beautiful clouds
Playing a concert up in Cloudland
The fans clap and shout
For their favorite cloud band.

When you hear lots of thunder
Be happy! Nature is singing live!
When you are out of fingers to number
They’re just giving loud high fives!

Don’t be scared little one
From lightning up high in the sky
The concert needs sound and lights
And some wind that goes by.

Next time you hear thunder
Don’t go hide under your cover
Join the party with the clouds
Before it’s gone, before it’s over.

I Took The Train To The Clouds

I took the train to the clouds

And got away from the crowds
With birds singing all the way
A peaceful song in my ears to play.
 
I saw many different faces
That I have seen in all those places
Where I lay down in soft, soft grass 
Sipping lemonade from a jar of glass. 
 
I saw sheep and bunny clouds
And trumpets that play loud 
Shook hands with cats and dogs
And kissed a pink fluffy little frog.
 
Oh the things that I can think
In just one moment of an eye blink
When my dad lifts me in the air
I can’t help to dream, I swear! 
 
And as my ‘dream train’ takes me away
Softly I close my eyes and pray
May all the children everywhere
Feel the love spreading in the air.
