8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
We'll have some Cotton Candy And A Toy Balloon,
On a sunny Sunday afternoon,
We'll hear that rinky tinky wonderful sound,
And catch a ring around the merry-go-round.
We'll have a happy day as we go struttin' at the fair,
We're gonna shout "Hooray,"
And toss our troubles in the air,
Gotta get a little,
Cotton Candy And A Toy Balloon,
Cuttin capers 'neath the paper moon,
We're gonna ride the roller coaster high up above,
And steal a million kisses in the tunnel of love,
You're simply bound to sing a happier tune,
If you've got Cotton Candy And A Toy Balloon.
