Silver Coins



But through deep and misty chasm
A mermaid’s cry tells me I have some
Silver coins in an ancient land
Before its kingdom awaits my reward.




If I one mighty camel had
I would carry you across the river
All over the mountain crest
And lie beside you down and rest





If I knew a holy tree
I would bury our moments next to thee
Though none of these I can deliver
I am but a poor penniless lad



If I had a joker card
I would lead you with my hand
Until we strolled before the sun
Long before the end begun
