On the other side of the moonLie the dear old songs that we love the best.
Ever so far, beyond the last little star,
There's a land, I know,
Where the good songs go,
Where it's always afternoon,
And snug in a haven of peace and rest
—"The Land Where The Good Songs Go" (by Jerome Kern and PG Wodehouse)
