I think this is a great song along with so much meaning. For Paula, from Australia, some people who are writing here speak/write English as a second language as well as some are just not proficient at writing. This is not the place for children (or anyone) to learn how to write. It's to communicate emotion.

I think I've been on this ride at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World about 30 times. I was on the original ride in the original building which is the one at Disneyland at the New York World's Fair both years in 1964-65. It's the best and I love the song and love to sing along whenever I hear it. In case you haven't figured out, I must be older inasmuch as I referred to the World's Fair in 1964-65 -- I'm 65 years old and still a kid. I think Disneyland & Disney World are really built for adults rather than children so they can be kids again forever.

I love this song. We once had a peace corps volunteer (Hello Beverly!) who lived with us back in our country in the 70's. She would sing and play this song in the piano and I just loved listening to her especially when she was already on the refrain part where she would sing it in our own dialect. The way she was pronouncing the words in our lingo was very cute :-)
