The Man in the wilderness
He asked of me
How many strawberries grow in the salt sea
And I answered him, as I thought good
As many a ship sails in the wood

The Man in the wilderness
He asked me why
His hare could swim and his pig could fly
And I answered him, as I thought best
They were both born in a cuckoo's nest

The Man in the wilderness
Asked me to tell
All the sands in the sea and I counted them well
Said with the grain, well, not one more
I answered him, you go make sure

Said with the grain, and not one more
I answered him, you go make sure
Said with the grain, and not one more
I answered him, you go make sure
I answered him, now you, you go make sure
