Happiness is a carousel ride,
That goes round and round and round,
With gaily painted ponies,
Whose heads bob up and down.
Round and round, with joy unbound,
Bubbling music, sparkling lights,
Happy, giggling, wiggling times,
Little folk sleep well this night.

Childhood pleasures that never leave,
Embedded in one's heart,
Adult treasures in time of need,
Recalled when life grows dark.
Calliopes and carousels,
Good times, good folks, good days,
The joy still goes round and round,
Precious dreams don't fade away.
