With a coin in my pocket A trumpet in my hand I am travelling with my pony to a far happy land Where the flowers smell like spring And everyone sings songs of love Everytime I travel far I bring a little coin My trumpet, pony and I But nothing seems to change Things stay the same There is no one to blame But me and my coin The road is long but I am strong I hold on to my coin Everytime I travel far I bring a little coin My trumpet, pony and I But nothing seems to change Things stay the same There is no one to blame But me and my coin At the end of the journey Me and my pony We have arrived in this land And my trumpet plays the song Everytime I travel far I bring a little coin My trumpet, pony and I But nothing seems to change Things stay the same There is no one to blame But me and my coin With a coin in my pocket A trumpet in my hand I am travelling with my pony to a far happy land

I moved into a new home there's a garden out at the back with my suitcase it's time to unpack I am here to stay until I have found my way In the garden out at the back, there are plants, things I don't know I met some parrots I think they followed me from the other side of the world Only the parrots in London know, where they have come from They know yes they know where they have come from They know yes they know where they belong Some say they came from Spain Some say they came with the rain Some say they escaped from Jimi Hendrix's cage Only the parrots in London know, where they've come from They know yes they know where they have come from They know yes they know where they belong They look after me on my way home Make sure I don't roam alone I see them fly, they give me hope Only the parrots in London know, where they have come from

Mr Sparrow 03:53
Oh Mr Sparrow You know how I feel You come to my window and sit on the tree Oh Mr Sparrow You know how I feel You come to my window and sit on the tree I look far in the sky I see you flying away But I know in my heart I will see you one day Oh Mr Sparrow It's now summertime Don't be shy You know how to fly On this sunny day Please come my way

When I was a child I thought I could touch the wind I would put my hand in the sky and say Blow blow blow wind blow Blow all my worries away and let all the pretty ones stay Today I saw your face I thought I had something to say But when I looked at you everything blew away I blame the wind It blows so strong It wiped all my thoughts away Or maybe it's your face, so beautiful it blew all my words away Blow blow blow wind blow Blow all my worries away and let all the pretty ones stay You are the one that blows my mind away When I was a child I thought I could touch the wind And I'll tell you something I still can touch the wind

Rain 03:03
How heavy fell the rain today From the clouds on a lonely bay The wind moved them high The wind sings with you stillT The young fox on the hill And your mind with her has gone Rain Rain Rain please pour on me Rain Rain Rain sing with me Rain Rain Rain hide your tears Rain Rain Rain joy for your ears Rain Rain Rain in the dark there is your sorrow Rain Rain Rain comes with you tomorrow

Freedom 02:59
You know why the caged bird sings He sings of beautiful things He spreads his wings towards the blue sky And dreams of freedom How did we get it wrong? I want freedom You know why the cackatoo cries Everyday he becomes more wise The outback tree is my home So why am I caged all alone? How did we get it wrong? I want freedom I see the other birds fly High in the sky Playing in the breeze Hide and seek behind the tree How did we get it wrong? I want freedom You know why the caged bird sings He sings of beautiful things It's not so hard to do He doesn't want to be in the zoo How did we get it wrong? I want freedom You know why the caged bird sings He sings of beautiful things He spreads his wings towards the blue sky And dreams of freedom How did we get it wrong? I want freedom How did we get it wrong? A life is not at all without freedom

Who will take the blame if the sun doesn't rise The clouds are lonely without nothing to hide Who will take the blame if the cherrytree doesn't blossom When it's time for spring.. Who will take the blame if the fish are looking for a new home In colder water far from the heat I have seen the ocean in your heart, there were fish, there were cherrytrees We all cared more! Who will take the blame if the music doesn't play The room is quiet and there's nothing left to say Who will take the blame when it's time to go home It's cold outside and there's no one by your side Who will take the blame if we all go home To watch our screens and don't hear our friend's screams I have seen the ocean in your heart, there were fish, there were cherrytrees We all cared more! Who will take the blame if the trees are all gone To a better planet, where their roots aren't torn Who will take the blame when it's time to go to bed And no stories to read are left Who will take the blame if the poet lost his pen And this song doesn't have an end …We all take the blame, we all take the blame We all must give an hand to care for this land Who will take the blame? Who will take the blame?

A Mouse went walking on a fine day Later he arrived to a lovely house He entered inside and found somewhere to hide He was quietly looking for some bread crumbs The house was very clean nothing to be found Later at night, the lady came back She went to the kitchen looking for a snack Cutie little Mouse ran across the floor He scared the lady without a roar! She hid in her room and said: 'Thankfully I am not dead! I will catch you mouse you bet!' After an hour the house was full of traps She put some bait with cheese and traps The traps didn't catch the Mouse The lady did not know why (But I know why) The Mouse did not like cheese!

Fireflies 03:03
Hello world will be night soon In the bush there is me and the moon Fireflies light my way I will look for them everyday Fireflies a moment in the night Hello moon so bright tonight Turn my loneliness into light Hello light glimpse of joy Clear the world from the sorrow Hello sorrow you are hurting us inside Free your spell from the mind Fireflies light my way I will look for them everyday Fireflies a moment in the night Hello world will be morning soon In the bush there is me and the moon Fireflies light my way I will look for them everyday Fireflies a moment in the night Love is the king of tomorrow Free our minds from the sorrow

Prisoner 02:43
Walking alone at night I forgot how it feels to be loved But If I close my eyes I feel like you are here Your hand touches my hand gently Your voice whispers slowly I open my eyes and you are here The falling stars are crying The noisy birds laughing Please come and take my to your planet I want to be.. Your Prisoner, Your Prisoner I want to be your Prisoner, Your Prisoner, Your Prisoner I want to be your.. Take me, Take me high to Venus, Mars and the Sun I am not going back I want to be where you are Your Prisoner, Your Prisoner I want to be your Prisoner Your Prisoner, Your Prioser I want to be your..

I have lived 27 years I have travelled more than one million miles I have met beautiful smiles But there is something I have never seen I have never seen a whale Have you ever seen a whale? The whale that wonders around the world The whale that follows the sun The whale that jumps in the sky for fun The whale that goes back to where life begun You can leave one hundred years You can travel more than one million miles You can meet beautiful smiles but there is something you will never see I have never seen a whale Have you ever seen a whale? The whale that wonders around the world The whale that follows the sun The whale that jumps in the sky for fun The whale that goes back to where life begun If you ever meet a whale You should never touch his tail because if you ever touch his tail You will never meet another whale!
