The Red Balloon

by Sharon H.

I found this looking for a rare Judy Garland recording by the same name.



My story begins and ends with me
This is a story about me

Once upon a time very far away
There lived a little girl
A little girl just like me

And once upon a time
She had a red balloon
She wanted to fly high
The sun, the stars, the moon

And once upon a time
She had a red party gown
She wanted to dance high
The sky, the birds, the clouds

Fly, fly away
Fly, fly away
And forget that little girl
The sky is yours today

Once upon a time
She had a red business card
She wanted to climb high
That ladder to the sky

And once upon a time
She had a red hospital gown
She wanted to fly high
And never touch the ground
And never come back down

Fly, fly away
Fly, fly away
And forget that little girl
The sky is yours today

My story begins and ends with me
This is a story about me

My story will go on and on and on
And I'll never fly until the day
Until my red balloon floats away
