The wind can sing songs to the birds in the trees

And can tickle the flowers with its whimsical breeze.

    It can make the leaves dance to its whistling tune

    But its fingers can't reach as far as the moon.

 

The wind can tease Granny as it tugs at her hat.

It can ruffle the fur on the back of the cat.

    It can toss way up high a big yellow balloon,

    But its fingers can't reach as far as the moon.

 

The wind can blow kites very high in the sky

And look!  There's one sailing up there, very high -

    It can blow in the night and can blow too at noon -

   But its fingers can't reach that faraway moon!
