Flying carpets where have you gone

I need a rug to ride upon

Perhaps a shell like Venus had

Or dolphin’s back, like Alan Ladd.

We should recall those olden days

When fantasy was all the rage

And films and books and fables old

Like fairy tales were stories told.

Today the truth is all we’ve got

Accepting that, I’d rather not

While Ali Baba was his name

Those forty thieves brought him his fame

Arabia was mystic too

I liked it then, well didn’t you ?

Today tis sad, this world to think

It seems we’ve reached the final brink

There’s no time left for let’s pretend

The world we knew has met its end !
