Chorus:
I turn to Tiger Lily
I see you reach inside for Pan
We'll fly low under overwhelming
Search out a secret place to land


Lyrics:
Wendy Bird © 1998 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

Well they shot the Wendy Bird
Hook keeps leaving those poison cakes
One's an act of sinister intent
The other was all a huge mistake

Sweet pink clouds
Are looking kinda sick
They sense that something's gone awry
The magic dust is turning toxic

Fairy tales threaten to go bad
The plot is thickening, starting to stink
Fear scare everywhere ruling the day
Enchanted isles - slip and sink

I turn to Tiger Lily
I see you reach inside for Pan
We'll fly low under overwhelming
Search out a secret place to land

The crocodile connection is a part of the whole scheme
He truly is an ally - scary though he seems
No one dares take giant steps in such a deadly game
Steady baby-steps could get us through the same

Tink has taken - the poison in unto herself
So clap your hands and save a friend
We'll all swim Mermaids' Lagoon again

When the serious keep frowning gonna send 'em out to play
All those nay-saying cynics - we'll just take away their "nay"
Be consistent and persistent in the face of all resistance
C'mon happy ending make my day

I turn to Tiger Lily
I see you reach inside for Pan
We'll fly low under overwhelming
Search out a secret place to land
... a sacred place... a lovely place ... It's all a huge mistake
