A Day Dreamer’s Diary
I remember when I was young and so naive
There was no limit to what I would believe
There were so many things I wanted to be
In my vivid imagination I could clearly see
Star trekking with Captain Kirk and the Enterprise
Exploring worlds of danger, excitement and surprise
To be an astronaut, I had my heart set
Instead I became a space cadet..!
There was no limit to my imagination
As I toured the world and every nation
A rock singer on centre stage, my wailing lead guitar
I tried to learn once, but that didn’t get very far
It’s All Ireland Hurling Final day
For the *Rebel county, time is ticking away
From Hill 16 the Rebel Roar
As that last gasp winning point I score..
Or a famous actor, the hero who saves the day
Who kills all the bad guys and then just walks away
To be as cool as Clint Eastwood and that Dirty Harry stare
Breaking every rule and didn’t really care
Leading Ireland to the World Cup glory
Beating Brazil that was my story
A hero I so badly wanted to be
Today, I am just happy to be me..
