THERE IS A HAPPY LAND (David Bowie) David Bowie - 1967 There is a happy land where only children live They don't have the time to learn the ways Of you sir, Mr. Grownup There's a special place in the rhubarb fields Underneath the leaves It's a secret place and adults aren't allowed there Mr. Grownup, go away, sir Charlie Brown's got half a crown He's gonna buy a kite Jimmy's ill with chicken pox And Tommy's learned to ride his bike Tiny Tim sings prayers and hymns He's so small we don't notice him He gets in the way But we always let him play with us Mother calls, but we don't hear There's lots more things to do It's only 5 o'clock, and we're not tired yet But we will be, very shortly Sissy Steven plays with girls Someone made him cry Tony climbed a tree and fell Trying hard to touch the sky Tommy lit a fire one day Nearly burnt the field away Tommy's mum found out But he put the blame on me and Ray There is a happy land where only children live You've had your chance And now the doors are closed, sir Mr. Grownup, go away, sir (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2013)
