Dream Song


In the castle cats are singing
Frogs discoursing in the well
Crows reciting verses
While the drunkard rings the bell.

In the courtyard someone's reading
While the wizard casts his spell
Also there's a lady laughing
While the drunkard rings the bell.

I am there and you are there
We hear a madman's yell
But the lady keeps on laughing
While the drunkard rings the bell.
