Come Play

Wanna go outside and play?
I brought my flying jet pack
Come with me, let’s fly away
But don’t worry, we’ll be back

I brought my flying jet pack
Think happy thoughts, and you’ll fly
But don’t worry, we’ll be back
Come on, bro, let’s go get high

Think happy thoughts, and you’ll fly
Pretend that you’re still alive
Come on, bro, let’s go get high
Watch my cool new rainbow dive

Pretend that you’re still alive
We’re safe, nothing can hurt us
Watch my cool new rainbow dive
We’ll drive the Magic School Bus

We’re safe, nothing can hurt us
Don’t be scared, jump in head first
We’ll drive the Magic School Bus
Let’s explore the universe

Don’t be scared, jump in head first
The violet sky’s inviting
Let’s explore the universe
Our wildest dreams igniting

The violet sky’s inviting
Come with me, let’s fly away
Our wildest dreams igniting
Wanna go outside and play?
