Here I lie, good old Walt
No, I am not frozen in a vault.
The dreams of my life have all been fulfilled
Seeing the look on a child’s face, when they’re completely thrilled.
Marceline, Missouri was my hometown
Sixty-five years was how long I was around.
I knew I had talent when I was quite small
Who knew what I would accomplish, when I became tall?
Imagination is something I have always possessed.
Using yours is certainly something that I would suggest.
I created two worlds, in which adults became kids
Acting too mature is something I forbid
Fantasy and magic is what I’m all about
With a hint of the future, which I couldn’t do without
I am glad I have been welcomed into every American’s house
But we all must remember…it all started with a mouse.
