    Was just listening to some music and this song came on my ipod. Its called Magic Kindom in the Sky by Davinci's notebook. I like to think this is what heaven could be like and if so that Bob would be having a ball.


    All my life I have been searching for that fabled promised land,
    With my sisters and my brothers we shall walk there hand-in-hand.
    Through the trials and tribulations and the devils cruel temtations.
    I know that we'll all get there one day!

    After years and years of wandering, oh that kingdom we shall find
    and the doors might not be open but we'll gather in the line.
    And our hearts will swell with pride the day those gates swing open wide and take a walk down Main Street USA!

    Oh, that Magic Kingdon in the sky!
    We will all be there together by and by!
    We will all drink from the fountain and go riding on Space Mountain!
    When we reach that Magic Kingdom in the sky!

    When mother Minnie and Uncle Dopie and Saint Tinkerbelle abide
    There'll be no more cares or sorrow on that heavenly TeaCup ride.
    I will lay down all those fears when I put on those big black ears,
    and join the choir to sing harmony!

    We will sing the song of aimless soul, that one gone astray
    Who were lost but now were found in the Electrical Parade
    Singing Hakuna Matata, growing musketeer stigmata
    In the only club thats made for you and me!

    Oh, that Magic Kingdom in the sky!
    We will all be there together by and by!
    All Gods children shall be free in The Pirates of the Carribean
    When we reach that Magic Kingdom in the sky!

    Oh, the meekest and the poorest their inheritance shall see
    and a zillion Japanese tourist all will join the jamboree
    They will ride that holy Monorail into sweet providence
    When they learn their redeemer is a mouse in short red pants!

    Wont you take me to Orlando where the sun is shining bright?
    All the angels are clean shaven and the people snowy white
    Where your prblems are all hidden and unhappiness forbidden
    You will find salvation for modesty!

    Climb in my Winnebago and if you will help with the gas
    Then maybe we can finagle you a five or six day pass
    May your afterlife be blessed just American Express it
    Let Master Card and Visa set you free!

    Oh, that Magic Kingdom in the sky
    We will al be there together by and by! Mickey Mouse and all his friends will be there to meet us at the end
    When we reach that Magic Kingdom in the Sky!

    Oh, that Magic Kingdom in the sky!
    Manufactured by that Uncle Walter guy!
    We'll give thanks to that old geezer and we'll keep him in the freezer

    When we reach that Magic Kingdom in the...sky!

    Yeah, that song has been kicking around the DIS for a few years (with the YouTube link). I love it...and I also thought of that song as I have been thinking about Bob's passing.

    Just downloaded it on iTunes and cried through the whole thing. Even though it's sort of a tounge-in-cheek song, I think it's a great sentiment. I always say that I hope I find my own Disneyland someday (in the sky).

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that song. Very odd song, but I love it. I think Bawb would have loved it.

    I don't have an Ipod or do itunes, so with a little investigative and exhausting internet research (and after making sure it wasn't on an album I could buy from the now split up Davinci's Notebook) I found the mp3. Here is the link:

    Hope it is ok to post here. If not, please remove mods. It is a link to download on an NFCC website. (A Disneyanna enthusiasts club.)

    Thanks for finding this - I couldn't find it in iTunes and hadn't gotten around to investigating yet.

    [For iPod users - just save the file and then import it into your iTunes.]

    That's one of my favorites! And you're right- it's perfect for Bob.

    I first heard it about 10-12 years ago. DH and I have it on our iPods and have always thought that it should be played at each of our funerals.

    Thanks for thinking about it for Bob- that will sure help the smiles come back when I think about him in "that Magic Kingdom in the sky!"
