lyrics

Well remember i wrote that song the other day?
I sent it to you by email from an internet cafe
You told me it was negative
You didn't like what you had heard
So i've written another and this one
Has much more happy words!

It's about Cake, and chocolate
And houses with central heating
This one doesn't mention wars
Or genocide or beatings
and i know you will be happy
'Cos it's filled with fluffy things
You can transcend the world's problems
On imaginary wings!

Well unicorns are nice and so is cheese
Or sunsets, and a nice cool summer breeze
And we'll forget that most people can't
Enjoy them 'cos they haven't got time
'Cos they're too busy trying to clothe their kids
Or avoiding urban crime

So it's all about Cake, and chocolate
And houses with central heating
This song doesn't mention wars
Or genocide or beatings
and i know you will be happy
For the comfort that it brings
You can transcend the world's problems
On imaginary wings
You'll be proud with your head in the clouds
On your imaginary wings
You can transcend the world's problems
On imaginary wings!
