Now lying on his mat,
All he does is sleep.
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Believe me, when I say high school is a jungle
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street.
