El Dorado


I have a place called heaven
Where my spirits rise and soar -
It's the chair by the TV,
When Countdown's on at four.

I have a place called heaven
Where my happiness is true -
It's everywhere my children are,
Now they're a motley crew.

I have a place called heaven
Where contentment knows no end -
It's those quiet moments with my wife,
She's my lover and my friend.

I have a place called heaven
Where there's peace, no need for sun -
It's those writing moments all alone,
Waiting for the Muse to come.

I have a place called heaven
It fits in with my style -
No expensive flights or train rides,
I'm in heaven all the while!
