    Lyrics

    Saint Stephen with a rose
    In and out of the garden he goes
    Country garden in the wind and the rain
    Wherever he goes the people all complain

    Stephen prospered in his time
    Well he may and he may decline
    Did it matter, does it now
    Stephen would answer if he only knew how

    Wishing well with a golden bell
    Bucket hanging clear to hell
    Hell halfway twixt now and then
    Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again

    Lady finger, dipped in moonlight,
    Writing "what for?" across the morning sky
    Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer
    Darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye
    Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow
    What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned
    Several seasons with their treasons
    Wrap the babe in scarlet colors, call it your own

    Did he doubt or did he try?
    Answers aplenty in the by and by
    Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills
    One man gathers what another man spills

    Saint Stephen will remain, all he's lost he shall regain
    Seashore washed by the suds and foam
    Been here so long, he's got to calling it home.

    Fortune comes a crawlin', calliope woman
    Spinnin' that curious sense of your own
    Can you answer?
    Yes I can
    But what would be the answer to the answer man?
