    So good to meet you, Mr. Chess
    I've always heard that you're the best
    At housing knights
    And castles high up in the air

    So I beseech you, Mr. Chess
    To let me sleep inside your bed
    And would you sleep, too
    Would you sleep, too, in the chair?

    You see, I dream of many things
    Of floating, solitary kings
    Of pawns and people with
    Blue sequins through their hair

    A jester sings
    The bishop brings the queen
    A hollow following...
    And all the pawns

    And people stop
    And people stare
    So, I, too, stop
    At 3 o'clock
    I stumble to your door and knock
    And ask to see you
    And ask to be you

    Mr. Chess.. Oh, Mr. Chess..

    Now I beseech you, Mr. Chess
    To let me sleep, to let me rest
    To let me dream
    To let me sing without a care

    And I will dream you things so fair
    I sing your castles in the air
    And I will sleep, too
    I will sleep, too
    I will rest... Oh, Mr. Chess,.. My Mr. Chess...
