"Some Velvet Morning" as written by and Lee Hazlewood....

Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
And how she gave me life
And how she made it end
Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight


Flowers growing on a hill, dragonflies and daffodils
Learn from us very much, look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name


Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
And how she gave me life
And how she made it end
Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight


Flowers are the things we know, secrets are the things we grow
Learn from us very much, look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight
Flowers growing on a hill
I'm gonna open up your gate
dragonflies and daffodils
And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
Learn from us very much
And how she gave me life
look at us but do not touch
FADE
And how she made it end

    General CommentOn a saffron-colored wintry night
    The frost giant’s daughter under a bridge
    Is whistling a song

    The moon is rising slowly, slowly to the tune
    The frost giant’s daughter on this cold midnight
    Is alone
    Dreaming a strange dream
    Like a princess

    A Chilly Moonrise—Fuyuji Tanaka [paraphrased]
