Walking to the Midway at the carnival this night
Looking overhead at the moon so big and bright
Restless on the way to ride the Ferris wheel of fright
A barker hollers, “Come and play” catching us in flight
We stop in our tracks to try our luck but all of us did fail
Caring not, we run ahead and catch the crowded trail
Getting on at last, we begin the exciting ride to the sky
A better look upon the moon is pleasing to our eye.
It’s what we came for actually
To get the ultimate glance
Because as kids, we realize
This is our very best chance
We have no telescopic lens and
Our stature is so short
To see the moon atop this ride
Was our only vantage point.
And so we saw it, just in time
As wispy clouds moved in
Just as the ride ended
It was covered up again.
So if you’re just a kid like us
And want to see the sight
Of the moon on a clear yet
Somewhat cloudy, spooky, fun-filled night
Go to a carnival or fair
And catch the Ferris wheel
From there you’ll get your wish tonight
It’s really your best deal.
