A diamond necklace played the pawnHand in hand some drummed along, ohTo a handsome man and batonA blind class aristocracyBack through the opera glass you seeThe pit and the pendulum drawnColumnated ruins dominoCanvass the town and brush the backdropAre you sleeping? Hung velvet overtaken meDim chandelier awaken meTo a song dissolved in the dawnThe music hall a costly bowThe music all is lost for nowTo a muted trumperter swanColumnated ruins dominoCanvass the town and brush the backdropAre you sleeping, brother john? Dove nested towers the hour wasStrike the street quicksilver moonCarriage across the fogTwo-step to lamp lights cellar tuneThe laughs come hard in auld lang syneThe glass was raised, the fired roseThe fullness of the wine, the dim last toastingWhile at port adieu or dieA choke of grief hard hardened iBeyond belief a broken man too tough to crySurf’s upAboard a tidal waveCome about hard and joinThe young and often spring you gaveI heard the wordWonderful thingA children’s songChild, child, child, child, childA child is the father of the manChild, child, child, child, childA child is the father of the manA children’s songHave you listened as they playedTheir song is loveAnd the children know the wayThat’s why the child is the father to the manChild, child, child, child, childChild, child, child, child, childNa na na na na na na naChild, child, child, child, childThat’s why the child is the father to the manChild, child, child, child, child
