Butterscotch Sky

The sun was a lemon drop, catching my eye
Gleaming a twinkle in buttersctch sky
And white candy cotton just floated on by
That’s just how it was, and I never would lie

The mountains were cupcakes, with icing-capped peaks
We stopped and just nibbled away there for weeks
Where a soda pop river meanders and leaks
Right into a lake they call, “Come Take a Peek”

The lake was well stocked with those red Swedish fish
You could  rent necco wafers, the flavor you wish
And row out on this saucer, a sweet fishing dish
And catch red Swedish fish that were simply delish

The night sky was covered with dark chocolate bars
Sprinkled with sugary crystally stars
I remember it well, and everything’s true
If you don’t believe, I feel sorry for you

It sounds like a fantasy stretched a bit far
But that’s just the way dreams of childhood are
If you look out the window, you’ll see it’s no lie
There’s a lemony sun in a butterscotch sky
