Imagination is funny It makes a cloudy day sunny Makes a bee think of honey Just as I think of you Imagination is crazy Your whole perspective gets hazy Starts you asking a daisy What to do, what to do Have you ever felt a gentle touch And then a kiss, and then, and then Find it's only your imagination again Oh, well Imagination is silly You go around willy-nilly For example, I go around wanting you And yet I can't imagine that you want me too (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2013)
