Lyrics[]

What's to become of Milo?
What will he grow to be?
Well, he looks at life, and he doesn't see.
Doesn't see the bright blue sky,
Doesn't hear the train go by,
Doesn't sing a song!
Little fellow, what's wrong?

What's to become of Milo?
Lost in a vacant stare,
Doesn't have a dream,
Doesn't even care
He's a boy who might rise high,
Maybe even touch the sky,
All the world could be his pie if he'd only try!
Milo, open your eyes,
Look around you and see
See how interesting life can be.


Milo, aim for the sky
You could touch the sky, Milo
You could touch the sky.


What's to become of Milo?
Lost in a vacant stare,
Doesn't learn in school,
Doesn't even care.
He's a boy who might rise high,
Maybe even touch the sky,
All the world could be his pie if he'd only try!
Milo, open your eyes,
Look around you and see
See how interesting life can be.
Miiiiiiillllllllooooooooo...

Time is a gift, precious and rare
Take it and make it with all you can
Time is a gift given to you
Given to give you the world to see
Time is a gift given to you
Given to give you the time you need

No hope is too high Milo...

No hope is too high Milo
No dream too big to dream
You can climb a cloud
To a sunshine beam

Polish up your silver spoon
Say the word and call the tune
All the world's your green balloon
Come and catch the moon

Milo, open your eyes
Look around you and see
See how wonderful life can be
Milo...Milo...
