[English closing song
Be as free as you can be, a childlike love of fantasy / The world is a mystery for you and me / A miracle, an adventure too, a single wish waits for you, / The beating of your heart will see you through / When you think you can't go on, give it another try / The power of your youth is strong, and as big as the sky / Search over the valleys, and mountains and you'll see / believing in yourself sets you free! / Come on, I'll give you romance! Come on, I'll give you paradise!...
