"I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" from the Muppet Movie, written by Paul Williams & Kenny Ascher and originally performed by Dave Goelz as Gonzo.

One of the loveliest songs the Muppets ever Muppeted, this song was performed onstage by Dave Goelz at Jim Henson's memorial.


This looks familiar, vaguely familiar
Almost unreal, yet -- it's too soon to feel yet
Close to my soul and yet so far away
I'm going to go back there someday

Sun rises, night falls, sometimes the sky calls
Is that a song there, and do I belong there?
I've never been there, but I know the way
I'm going to go back there someday

Come and go with me, it's more fun to share
We'll both be completely at home in midair
We're flyin', not walkin', on featherless wings
We can hold onto love by invisible strings

There's not a word yet for old friends you've just met
Part heaven, part space, or have I found my place?
You can just visit, but I plan to stay
I'm going to go back there somday

Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
