Oldfield
Sunlight falling bright over the village garden walls
Moonlight showers gold where living water falls
People walk in splendour under trees hung in starlight
Candlelight lawns sweep down to the river that ripples on pebbles of turquoise
Fountains of golden light burst in quavers that float among the stars
The tables are laid with fruits of the wine and cedar from Samarkand
The golden gates are open wide for the people all over the land
A thousand dancing chandeliers shine in my lady's chamber
My lord comes swaying through the hall with a goblet of shining amber
Then nectar and brandy, wine and mead come flowing from shimmering springs
They all menuet to a string quartet and the Marquis's daughter shall sing
Gentle maidens walking in the garden
While they'are courted by the knights from the palace of love
They are all dressed in white with flowers of palest colour
They are all singing songs to the yellow moon above
Come to the Ball my love, sip sweet ambrosia
Tip in the forest Titania my love
Would you like brandy wine? Shall we go now and dine?
We'll do the merry minuet till the yellow moon has set
We shall dance through the midsummer night
Come my pretty Oberon trip, trip, trip
Come and sing a summer song trip, trip
I know a bank where cowslips trip
Whereon the wild thyme sits trip, trip
Dance in the midsummer night
Come my pretty puck and squeeze this magic flower
In the eyes of lovers in the midnight hour
This a flower of wonder is a magic seed
When they shall awake lay heaven at their feet
Would you like brandy wine?
Shall we go now and dine?
We'll do the merry minuet till the yellow moon has set
We shall dance through the midsummer night
