Lyrics as I remember them
26 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree this was a great show for teaching us kids to think "outside the box". It was always fun to see where word associations would lead, and how far afield they'd end from where they had started. ...and, of course the way the show encouraged our generation to enjoy language and have fun exploring ideas. I remember lyrics from the recurring and closing theme songs.

The recurring song was "If you want it, you can get it, but to get it, you gotta want it. Anything you want to try, just let go, fly HIGH,...and make a wish."

The closing song was "Dream a dream, sing a song, wish you could, right a wrong. Take a chance, sing and dance, wish you could, you'd find it good. dream your dreams. Dreams come true. They can even, work for YOU, make a wish."
