Oh, what a lovely fantasy!
A raindrop falls
Drip drop dop
Adventures of the night calls
Knock knock knock!
Miracles happen, you’ll see it soon.
This whole place will shine and bloom
What tickles the roots of the plant kingdom?
Come and find out, you’ll also get some!
Who sticks their toe into the ground?
Who makes this weird and funny sound?
What a lovely fantasy!
