Cm Fm Cm Fm G# I will bring you gold apples and grapes made of ruu--bies Fm A# That have shone in the eyes of a prince of the breeze. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# Bright cascading crystals, they danced in the saaand dunes Fm A# On the beach of no footprints to harpsichord tunes. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# A throne of white ivory, a gown of white laaaace Fm A# Lies still in the magic of a timeless place. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# One hundred small children, they laugh at the whiiiiite doves Fm A# That rest on their hands with the touch of love. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# On a hillside of velvet the children theeeeey lay down Fm A# And make fun of the grown-ups with their silly frown. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# And the sound of their laughter is the sound of the greeeen sea Fm A# As it washed around the foot of the seashell tree. [ Orchestration ] Cm Fm Cm Fm G# The doves circle over and land in the treeees Fm A# Where parrots are talking their words with such ease. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# Thus spoke three wizards to the young ones that daaay: Fm A# "There's sadness in the kingdom, make it go far away." Cm Fm Cm Fm G# If you follow the sunbeams through the valley of floooowers Fm A# To the palace of the White Queen with its white jade towers. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# The youngest, she sighed then the clouds drew awaaaay Fm A# And a hundred small fingers scratched their heads in dismay. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# From out of the sun a giant gull came flyyying Fm A# And the children got ready to sit on its wings. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# They waved to the raindrops as they soared over the treees Fm A# The wind tossed their hair high, flashing gold on the sea. [ Orchestration ] Cm Fm Cm Fm G# They came to the castle and there they did faaaaall, Fm A# And they saw all the sadness, through the crystal wall. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# A princess lay a-sleeping so gentle and kiiiind Fm A# Whilst her prince took to battle with his confused mind. Cm Fm Cm Fm G# The clash of bright metal brought the children feeear, Fm A# But their cloaks of blue satin dried up all of these tears. [ Orchestration ] Cm Fm Cm Fm G# Thus children held hands and they spelled out their naaaame Fm A# All the golden children became a golden chain. [ Orchestration ] Cm Fm Cm Fm G# It lies on a white throne in a magic plaaace Fm A# With a tunic of velvet and a gown of white lace. [ Orchestration ] Cm Fm Cm Fm G# My sword, it lies broken and cast in a laaake Fm A# In a dream I was told that my princess would wake.
