Track Name: Magical Cockatoos
Let's dance the cockatoo when we are traveling
Let's keep our feet off of the ground when we're traveling
Remember how it used to be when we're traveling
Carry away the memories when we're traveling

Underneath the canopy
Cracking down on the caraway seed
You cracked my skull with your magic soul
You fell down hard and you fell down slow

I remember the days we spent in the Mayan ruins
Those magical colors glowing in your emerald eyes and on your face
You left me high baby, you left me dry baby
You made me cry when you said goodbye baby

I forgot about the times we had
Playing magical cockatoos
