lyrics

To the land of amazing things we’d come
Where there’s something amazing for everyone
Chris carried climbing boots, Robin brought rope
A flashlight from Fran, and I took a telescope

So we got to the jungle and in we dived
To have the adventure of our lives
No worry what might be left behind
Dreaming of what we’d find

(Searchin’) Lookin’ around
(Searchin’) Up and down
(Searchin’) Wonderin’ how
We’ll be gettin’ somewhere

Wherever we looked, we felt chagrined
For all we found was a voice in the wind
“Stop, come back!” it would protest
But we just couldn’t stop our quest

(Searchin’) Lookin’ around
(Searchin’) Up and down
(Searchin’) Wonderin’ how
We’ll be gettin’ somewhere

Never finding a thing, our luck was out
So we went to see what that voice was about
We’d forgotten just what would save the day
Our friend Morgan with a map, hooray!

(Searchin’) Lookin’ around
(Searchin’) Up and down
(Searchin’) Knowin’ that now
We’ll be gettin’ somewhere

(Searchin’) Lookin’ around
(Searchin’) Up and down
(Searchin’) Knowin’ that now
We’ll be gettin’ somewhere
