Think of Christmas, think of snow, think of sleigh bells off you go like reindeer in the sky, you can fly, think of the happiest things, it's the same as having wings, take the path that moonbeams make, if the moon is still awake you'll see him wink his eye, you can fly Up you go, with a heigh and ho, to the stars beyond the blue, there's a Never Land waiting for you, where all your happy dreams come true.
It is Pan! Headed this way with some more of those scurvy brats! Mr Smee, pipe up the crew! Man the Long Tom, you bilge rats! I've waited years for this. That's not countin' the holidays either. We've got him this time, Mr Smee. Oh, Peter, it's just as I've always dreamed it would be. Oh, look, John, there's Mermaid Lagoon. By Jove! And the Indian encampment! Oh, look, there's Captain Hook and the pirates. Look out! Quick, Tink, take Wendy and the boys to the island. I'll stay here and draw Hook's fire.
Peter Pan, you saved my life. Are you hurted, Wendy? No, Michael. Pan! We followed your orders, Pan! Hey, Pan, I got it with my skull buster! Attention! Well I'm certainly proud of you, you blockheads! I bring ya a mother to tell ya stories. A mother? Tinker Bell. Come here. You're charged with high treason, Tink. Come on, Wendy, I'll show you the island. Oh, Peter, the mermaids? Let's go huntin'! Tigers? Naw, bears. Naw, bears. Personally, I should prefer to see the aborigines. And the Indians too.
Mr. Crocodile, do you like codfish? You do? Oh, Peter, no! Smee! Don't go away, Captain! Uh, stay right there now, sir. I'll save ya, sir. Smee! Captain! Row for the ship! Smee! Peter, what about Tiger Lily? Wait for me. That cursed Peter Pan. Making a fool out of me. Oh, my head. Oh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life. The poor Captain has a splitting headache. You know, there's trouble brewin' on the island. Women trouble.
What's that, my dear? You could show us the way? Why, I never thought of that. Take this down, Smee. Start at Pegleg Point. Forty paces west of Blindman's Bluff. Hop, skip and a jump across Crocodile Creek. Then north by northeast, one, two, three. Continue, my dear. I mustn't harm Peter? Madam, Captain Hook gives his word not to lay a finger or a hook on Peter Pan. Ah, Hangman's Tree.
Peter Pan will be blasted out of Never Land forever. But time grows short. We have but 18 seconds. Well, I guess I can open it now. Hey, Tink. Look what Wendy left. Hey, stop that! What's the matter with you? Hook? Don't be ridiculous! Why, if it hadn't been for Tinker Bell! Where are you, Tink? Are you all right? Wendy? The boys? But I've gotta save you first. Captain Hook, we will never join your crew. As you wish. Ladies first, my dear. Be brave, John. Goodbye, Michael. Goodbye, Wendy. Come on! Get along over there! Get going, miss. Get going!
To grow up. That's why they went back to Never Land. Well, my dear, all in good time. After all, perhaps we were too. Oh, but, Mother it was such a wonderful adventure. Tinker Bell and the mermaids and Peter Pan. Oh, he was the most wonderful of all. And we all called him a codfish! Captain Hook, I mean. And then we sailed away on a ship in the sky. Mary, I'm going to bed. Oh, Mother. He really is wonderful, isn't he? See how well he sails the ship. George! Now what, Mary? Nana, did you see. You know, I have the strangest feeling that I've seen that ship before. A long time ago. when I was very young. George, dear. Father. When there's a smile in your heart, there's no better time to start, think of all the joy you'll find, when you leave the world behind and bid your cares goodbye, you can fly.
