WISHING WELL

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


        I.  tail wags dog to and fro,
            flying on a UFO,
            to a rooftop, ho-ho-ho,
            of the sleeping world below.
            behind the church upon the hill,
            the dog climbs down the wishing well.
            comes the echo from below:
            "wishing doesn't make it so!"

       II.  Auntie Em is here again.
            black and white is her domain.
            healers heal on channel four
            and praise the ruby slipper cure.
            but Toto barked, the curtain fell.
            Oz was at the wishing well -
            fishing for the coins below.
            wishing doesn't make it so.

      III.  Dorothy's house returns in bits.    <-spoken
            upon the well is where it sits.     <-spoken
            Dorothy's house returns in bits.
            upon the well is where it sits:
            wall of rocks in disarray.
            witches melt and steam away.
            comes the echo from below:
            "wishing doesn't make it so."
            make a wish and let it go.
            wishing doesn't make it so.
