Wonderboy
Life's just begun
Turn your sorrow into wonder
Dream alone
Don't sigh don't groan
Life is only what you wonder

Day is as light as your brightest dreams
Night is as dark as you feel it ought to be
Time is as fast as the slowest thing
Life is only

Wonderboy
Wonderboy
Everybody's looking for the sun
People strain their eyes to see
But I see you and you see me
And ain't that wonder?

Wonderboy
Some mother's son
Life is full of work and plunder
Easy go
Life is not real
Life is only what you conjure

Wonderboy
And the world is joy
Every single day

It's the Real McCoy
Wonderboy
Everybody's looking for the sun
People strain their eyes to see
But I see you and you see me
And ain't that wonder?

Wonderboy
Some mother's son
Turn your sorrow into wonder
Dream alone
Go have your fun
Life is only
Life is only
Life is only
Life is only
