Nature Boy Lyrics

Artist: David Bowie
Album: Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

This story is about love,
The woman I loved is dead...

There was a boy,
A very strange enchanted boy.

They say he wandered very far,
very far over land and sea.

A little child and sailed about,
but very wise, was he.

And then one day, one magic day he passed my way,
while we spoke of many things Fools and Kings, this he said to me.

The greatest thing, you'll ever learn,
is just to love, and be loved in return.

I had purchased "Nature Boy" on iTunes; however, I read the words for the first time today on your site. What a powerful, impassioned song! The ending words left me with thoughts of who I truly care for and love, and the appreciation I have for my charming husband. Thank you!

I am a musician and poet, and one of my friends gave me the Moulin Rouge soundtrack as a gift, and I could not get over this first track! The lyrics are...paradoxically beyond words.

the lyric is should read (after "land and sea")..."a little shy, and sad of eye, but very wise was he."

The original song was written by Nat King Cole. It looks like Bowie changed them slightly. Not sure If I like the rewrite but the original is amazing.

Laura - Nature Boy was written as a catalogue piece by eden ahbez in 1947 a year before Nat King Cole recorded it.
It was not written for or by Nat King Cole, he just happened to be the first to popularise it.
