Lyrics

"You're crazy," they said, "to aim for the stars;
The stars are much, much too high."
"You're silly," they shouted, "just look at yourself,
You're human, you can't even fly."

And so as I jumped, and I sprang, and I leaped,
Laughing, they all stood around.
Now, I did not reach the stars, as they said,
But at least my feet left the ground.

Now, I did not reach the stars, as they said,
But at least my feet left the ground.
