Main Chorus Lyrics

It's a sky high celebration

So come on, come on, come on

Let's fly away,

Take a flight on imagination

come on, come on, come on

It's a brand new day,

We'll chase the rainbows,

Wherever the wind blows,

So come on, come on

A Flights of Fantasy

Whoa, whoa - hey, hey, hey

Whoa, whoa - hey, hey!
