Making Make Believe

Making Make Believe

by Paul Yanuziello

Making make believe,

that’s what life should be.

When I was growing up,

a long, long time ago,

the promises I made,

to never take life too seriously,

we’re all about make believe.

Make believe was so easy,

like making life ought to be.

Playing games, hopping, skipping

and jumping into adventure,

not a worry in the world.

Our only care, of drowning after lunch,

or becoming lunch,

for the wild animals in our dreams.

Make believe, I try and try,

to make believe that life will be,

as life ought to be.

When I was young,

a long, long time ago.

Make believe was easy to do.

All I had to do was close my eyes.

Make believe would come over me,

all my dreams would come true.

I would live the happily ever after,

in my castle by the sea.

Making make believe,

that’s my life,

my life of make believe.
