Swing me to 2012

Don't just stare at me on a seesaw,

Swing me to 2012.

Let me rock on the dandle board

Teeter-tottering to the new era

Let the Angel of destiny come,

Wing me to 2012.

Fly me to lands unknown

Far away unexplored undiscovered

Hit me the immense cathedral bells,

Ring me to 2012.

Let the tinkling sounds reach and echo

The horizons across hills of home

Grab the golden harp,

Sing me 2012 choral tunes.

Let me taste the fragrance of new song

Imbuing and blasting my five senses

And let's all join the mirth,

Celebrating the year 2012 apocalypto.

In jovial mood and savage dance

Who knows, tomorrow may never be

Let me brag my past success,

To nourish my spirits elate.

I am a cock-a-hoop, so what

Plow hard and get a life.
