Dance of the Pink Fairy

Lovely Fairy of the pink dress,
dance upon the ring of wreath,

Glow and Shine...
Fly and Dance...
Pink-a-fairy, Ting-a-berry,

Dance with Joy,
Tip' toe with charm
and sprinkled some fairy dust
as she sings..

A morning she flies...
with her wand held high..
A flower bud she came by..
and I heard her sigh..

" Periwinkle, periwinkle...
Wink, wink, wink..
Periwinkle, periwinkle..
Bloom, bloom, bloom...
