Make a Wish



As I look back on the sights and sounds of my youth, I sometimes wonder how I was able to formulate any coherent thoughts. This "Make a Wish" show aired around the same time the fabulous School House Rock series. While I don't remember the show too much, I definitely remember its pure 70s hippie-psychedelic theme song sung by host, Tom Chapin. Listening to the words now I can only say, "huh?" My ten year-old summed it up nicely when she said, "Oh yeah. I can be a redwood tree."

My finding this video is not as random as it may appear. I was actually trying to find Tom Chapin's song "What Does a Didgeridoo" to warn you all not to sing it around female Aborigines or they might get very offended.
