Gumboot heroes
splashing in the rain
two caped crusaders
bring the challenge on

wagon wheels in their pockets
a nickel buys the day
hide and seek
the adventure that we play

double dog dare ya
to be as brave
…as me

a budding buccaneer 
swathed with yellow gumboots
a princess with a tiara demands purple 
but then she is only four

stand by you forever
spit and hope to die
your word is your bond
what else do you have to give

double dog dare ya
to jump as high
…as me

no puddle ever too deep
no dream ever too far
a promise is a promise
don’t ja know don’t ja know

two untouched treasures
priceless trust and  innocence
best friends forever
what else would best friends
…possibly be
