the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast

i don’t wanna be a grown up like the grown ups i have seen
cause the grown ups i have seen don’t seem to have much fun
they don’t get down on the floor enough to pray or play with toys
when i’m a grown up i won’t wanna be one

now if i hit back at the time of the Prophet
i know that he would be different i just know he’d find the time
and i would make him something special like some paper planes or something
i could race those planes with him or get a camel back ride

the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast

i’d like to write a promise, i want you to make it too
that if i misbehave a little like i sometimes do
you won’t get really mad and you’ll be patient like the Prophet
i really like my promise, how about you

’cause the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast

to be a mommy or a daddy must be really really hard
so let’s take a break together ’cause i know how much you try
let’s have a dish of apple sauce and tumble in the yard
and we can play and we can pray along with the blue sky

the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast
