The Boy With A Moon And Star On His Head Lyrics

Artist: Cat Stevens
Album: Catch Bull At Four

A gardener's daughter stopped me on my way, on the day I was
to wed
It is you who I wish to share my body with she said
We'll find a dry place under the sky with a flower for a bed
And for my joy I will give you a boy with a moon and
star on his head.
Her silver hair flowed in the air laying waves across the sun
Her hands were like the white sands, and her eyes had
diamonds on.
We left the road and headed up to the top of the
Whisper Wood
And we walked 'till we came to where the holy magnolia stood.
And there we laid cool in the shade singing songs and
making love...
With the naked earth beneath us and the universe above.
The time was late my wedding wouldn't wait I was sad but
I had to go,
So while she was asleep I kissed her cheek for cheerio.
The wedding took place and people came from many
miles around
There was plenty merriment, cider and wine abound
But out of all that I recall I remembered the girl I met
'Cause she had given me something that my hear could not
A year had passed and everything was just as it was a year
As if was a year before...
Until the gift that someone left, a basket by my door.
And in there lay the fairest little baby crying to be fed,
I got down on my knees and kissed the moon and star on
his head.
As years went by the boy grew high and the village looked
on in awe
They'd never seen anything like the boy with the moon and
star before.
And people would ride from far and wide just to seek the
word he spread
I'll tell you everything I've learned, and Love is all...he said.
