Let’s build a stairway to the stars,
And climb that stairway to the stars,
With love beside us to fill the night with a song.
We’ll hear the sound of violins
Out yonder where the blue begins.
The moon will guide us as we go drifting along.
Can’t we sail away on a lazy daisy petal over the rim of the hill?
Can’t we sail away on a little dream
And settle high on the crest of a thrill?
Let’s build a stairway to the stars, a lovely stairway to the stars.
It would be heaven to climb to heaven with you.
