Many strange things did I behold
I had the favor of a queen and watched it turn to stone
I’ve kissed the lips of princes, fools and dreams
I walked a tightrope through the moonlight to the seven seas
I’ve seen silver headed Valentine
I carried up the swan kings gold and gave them thimble wine
I saw the old man time glisten before the end
I went down disappearing holes never seen again

I had a pearl and I lost it
I knew the bliss of the dawn and it faded
I saw her face turn away
and now I know that there is nothing so hard
I can’t get over it

On eleven o' two I sailed a red hot balloon
to the snow capped mountains of Timorataloo
And when the owl stole my air for his last tune
I floated up to Pluto on a beam of the moon

I had a pearl and I lost it
I knew the bliss of the dawn and it faded
I saw her face turn away
and now I know that there is nothing so high
I can’t get over it
