Tekst:
I wouldn't want to be a chimney sweep,
All black from head to foot
From climbing in them chimneys
And cleaning out that soot.
With a broom and ladder and pail
The darkened walls I scale
And far, and high
I see a patch of sky.

I'd rather be the gypsy,
Who's camped at the edge of town -
The one who has the dancing bear
That follows him around.
And he lifts his big foot up;
He puts his big foot down
And bows, and twirls,
And dances 'round and 'round.

I found I was a cabin boy
Last night as I did dream,
Bound upon a magic ship
For a land I'd never seen.
And the moon she filled our sails;
And the stars they steered our course;
And on our bow
There was a golden horse.

The queen eats fruit and candy;
The bishop nuts and cheese
And when I am a grown man,
I'll taste just what I please:
The honey from the bee,
The shellfish from the sea,
The earth, the wind, a girl - someone
To share these things with me.
