'The Story of Super Mouse'


I was gonna be your best friend
I was gonna be your boy
Faster than a roller coaster
Bring you smiles and fun and joy
I was gonna sit and watch you
You would teach me how to play
You would walk and I would follow
We would be the perfect day

The children watched in wonder
Waiting on my every move
Soft hands held me gently
You thought I could never lose...

And sometimes when the hour was quiet
The angels whispered in my ear
They said sleep on gently little one
There's a reason you are here...

I was only a little Mouse
But I could have been Super Mouse
One heartbeat away from making my way in the world
You held me till time time ran out
Gave me your day and night
And through your voice my story will be heard...

I'm a mighty force of nature
Small as I may be
I came to tell you something
Through my life and memory
I can't grow up to love you
Because I was born to die
The ones who caused this sorrow
Will never hear me cry...

And sometimes when the hour was quiet
The angels whispered in my ear
They said sleep on gently little one
There's a reason you are here...

I was only a little Mouse
But I could have been Super Mouse
One heartbeat away from making my way in the world
You held me till time time ran out
Gave me your day and night
And through your voice my story will be heard...
I was only a little Mouse
But I could have been Super Mouse
One heartbeat away from making my way in the world
You held me till time time ran out
Gave me your day and night
And through your voice my story will be heard...
And through your voice my story will be heard...
And through your voice my story will be heard...
