Well she's walkin' through the clouds

       Am                              Em7(vii)

Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and, uh, fairy tales.

That's all she ever thinks about, riding with the wind.

When I'm sad, she comes to me

With a thousand smiles she gives to me        free.

It's alright, she says it's alright,

Take anything you want from me.
