Lyrics:
Let's build a stairway to the stars
And climb that stairway to the stars
With love beside us
to fill the night with a song

We'll hear the sound of violins
Out yonder where the blue begins
The moon will guide us
As we go drifting along

Can't we sail away
On a lazy daisy petal
Over the rim of the hill
Can't we sail away
On a little dream
And settle high on the crest of a thrill

Let's build a stairway to the stars
A lovely lovely stairway to the stars
It would be heaven
To climb to heaven with you

{instrumental interlude}

Let's build a stairway to the stars
And climb that stairway to the stars
Yes we're climbing,
Climbing to the stairway to the stars, stars, stars, stars

Sound of violins
Way out yonder where the blue begins
The moon will guide us
As we go drift drift drifting along

Can't we sail away
On a lazy daisy petal
Over the rim of the hill
Can't we sail away
On a little dream
And settle high on the crest of a thrill

Keep building a stairway to the stars
A lovely stairway to the stars
It wouldn't be heaven
Heaven to climb with you
