Welcome to A Place That's Fun, A magic place where no work's done.
Inside here... Mary is green and Bobby is blue, But you might not know the color of Sue. Thereâs also the boy who wasnât quite right, After he stayed up the entire night. Thereâs a sleepy girl who avoids her bed, And prefers a stinky shoe instead. Meet the dancers who can peel a mango As they dance the Argentine tango. Learn about the best houses in all the land, Like the ones made from castles of sand. A Place That's Fun is a friendly spot, Where all your troubles are forgot. So please come in and sing our songs -- It's where any kind of kid belongs.
