To be a prince

Fulfil your destiny

No room for doubt

Each move mapped out

Not shrinking uncertainty



Commanding poise

A true born man

Chorus The Happy Prince 1 The swallow

Time passes quickly

Each today soon transforms into yesterday

Weeks grow to seasons

Seasons repeat with the passing of years

If I could fly just like a bird


If I could fly just like a bird

Cross the sky, soaring high

I could fly or dive or hover floating free

What a brilliant life an airborne life would be
