From the closing credits of ‘Five Children and It’ and ‘The Return of the Psammead’ – BBC TV. The song is called ‘Wishing’ … I did the vocals.
When you want your heart’s desire
And there’s nothing but the fire
Of a madly yearning wild imagination;
When all you have to do is choose,
And if you don’t you’re bound to lose,
Something special in your life will pass you by;
Castles in the air
Or a chest of purest gold,
Cast aside despair,
Start a quest –
Before you’re old …
A little harder every day,
To chase the clouds away!
In the twinkling of an eye,
You’ll grow tall –
Or even fly –
You won’t know until you try,
And in the magic that you find
Dream your dream away …
‘Wishing’ – words and music by Michael Omer.
