OK, it may not be THE golden ticket...
...but that hasn't stopped me from singing that song every day since my ticket to see Garrison Keillor arrived in my mailbox.
"I never dreamed that I would climb
Over the moon in ecstasy
But nevertheless, it's there that I'm
Shortly about to be
'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day"
