    Lyrics

    Roger Whittaker - Fairytale

    The first of the sunrays are cast on my home of pine needles
    as I wake to the sounds of the wood from my dandelion bed
    and I gaze through my small cobweb curtains, down through the arches
    that are made from the wings of the bees & the moths that are dead

    Fairytale children are dancing like jewels in the morning
    caterpillar skin boots & green velvet suits catch the sun
    the butterfly aeroplanes land on a runway of roses

    and the policemen cockroaches are standing by watching the fun

    I hear three bluebells ringing in a steeple of heather & roses
    I can hear them so clear as I glide by on dragonfly wings
    and the gamekeeper fairy who lives in a mushroom nearby
    plays a lute made of pinewood & oak and plucks cottonwool strings

    The last of the sunrays are leaving the floor of the wildwood
    as the phantom black beetle arrives on the wings of the bat
    the grasshopper coachmen are harnessing mice to my carriage
    and the four coachlight fireflies are put into place by the rat

    Farewell to the appleseed pavements and moss covered roadways
    the tall mushroom castles, fairytale children and all
    I may never again chance to fly upon dragonfly wings
    or wake where the morning sun shines on a pine needle wall
