FEMALE CHORUS
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls,
Disney proudly presents
Our spectacular nighttime pageant of magic and imagination,
In millions of dazzling lights (lights)
And astounding musical sounds.
It’s the Paint the Night Parade!

(Music transitions to “When Can I See You Again?” by Owl City.)

MALE SOLOIST
Switch on the sky, and the stars glow for you.
Go see the world, ’cause it’s all so brand new.
Don’t close your eyes, ’cause your future’s ready to shine,
It’s just a matter of time before we learn how to fly!
Welcome to the rhythm of the night.
Something’s in the air, you can’t deny.

Put your hands up, ’cause the night is young!
Kick your heels up when you join the fun.
As the magic sets us all aglow,
I gotta know, my friends,
When can we do this again?

I never want this to end!
