Rocket Rods Song and Lyrics

Below are the lyrics and audio from "World of Creativity (Magic Highways of Tomorrow)," the song for the former Disneyland attraction, Rocket Rods. The lyrics may not be 100% accurate, as I had to transcribe them myself. I believe however they are pretty close.

The first 3 minutes of the song are mainly melody, no lyrics (other than a few non lyrical phrases). If you want to skip to the lyrics portion, please click here. However I recommend listening to the whole thing. It’s only four minutes, and it’s adapted from a Sherman Brothers tune, after all!

World of Creativity (Magic Highways of Tomorrow)
Arranged and performed by Steve Bartek
Adapted from the song "Detroit," composed by the Sherman Brothers for the film The Happiest Millionaire

You can hear it hummin', see it comin'
Stretching down across through all the land. 
Rapid transportation, to destinations, every one at your command

Magic Highways of tomorrow, are more than what they seem
Ride your mind's designs; ride a dream

Ride through open spaces, to distant places
Every destination's up to you
Traveling fast as sound, high above the ground
Hear our dreams and ride them too

Magic Highways of tomorrow are much more than what they seem
Ride your mind's designs; ride a dream
