oh, the places you'll go

Somehow you'll escape
all that waiting and staying.
You'll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.

With banner flip-flapping,
once more you'll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Ready because you're that kind of a guy!

...and the game (a statement on the futility of success? -- the purpose
of the game being
to collect as many orange balloons as you can before
time runs out?)

I do actually have a sentimental attachment to this book...something
about the nostalgia of youth and possibilities.
