Started this with Cheryl Perkins. I'm pretty sure she took what we did and finished her own song. Not sure if I've ever heard it.

Never Never Land
Lyrics and music by Derek Shacklett & Cheryl Perkins

See the princess with her tear-stained face
She's wondering where he prince has gone
He left her for the kisses of mermaids
Said he didn't know "ever-after" was so long
And all the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put her broken heart
Back together again

Welcome to the never neverland
Where your life never turns out the way you planned
So, welcome to the never neverland

See the woman in her shoe-string house
She’s got too many mouths to feed
Two jobs, three kids, more bills than she can count
She didn’t know all her life would be “in need”

And all the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put her broken life
Back together again

Welcome to the never never land
Where your life never turns out the way you planned
So, welcome to the never never land

Where the answers don’t come easy
Like the end of storybooks
You can have your happy ending
You’ve just got to learn how to look

Welcome to the never never land
Where your life never turns out the way you planned
So, welcome to the never never land
