Lyrics to the song....
9 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At least part of the lyrics to the theme song have stuck with me for all these years, though could be slightly revised because that's what happens with songs. I'm sure this isn't the whole song. Someone needs to re-release this song. It's lovely.

Once, on golden wings, You and I went wandering, With no one there to say Golden wings can melt away

Like a (something) in a stream, We are living in a dream, That lasts for just a day, And just as quickly melts away

I remember the film itself affect me and my siblings quite deeply. I don't know how this would go over with today's kids, but I imagine many of them would enjoy it quite a bit. I've been impressed with today's teens.
