Cm                    Fm       Cm                 Fm   Ab
I will bring you gold apples   and grapes made of ruu--bies
                       Fm        Bb
That have shone in the eyes of    a prince of the breeze.

Cm                Fm       Cm                 Fm     Ab
Bright cascading crystals, they danced in the saaand dunes
                   Fm          Bb
On the beach of no footprints   to harpsichord tunes.

Cm                Fm     Cm              Fm   Ab
A throne of white ivory, a gown of white laaaace
                   Fm      Bb
Lies still in the magic     of a timeless place.

Cm                Fm        Cm                 Fm       Ab
One hundred small children, they laugh at the whiiiiite doves
                   Fm        Bb
That rest on their hands     with the touch of love.

Cm               Fm      Cm            Fm           Ab
On a hillside of velvet   the children theeeeey lay down
                    Fm          Bb
And make fun of the grown-ups    with their silly frown.

Cm                    Fm        Cm                   Fm     Ab
And the sound of their laughter is the sound of the greeeen sea
                    Fm            Bb
As it washed around the foot of    the seashell tree.

Cm               Fm    Cm               Fm   Ab
The doves circle over   and land in the treeees
                    Fm      Bb
Where parrots are talking    their words with such ease.

Cm               Fm       Cm                      Fm  Ab
Thus spoke three wizards   to the young ones that daaay:
                    Fm             Bb
"There's sadness in the kingdom,    make it go far away."

Cm                Fm         Cm                     Fm    Ab
If you follow the sunbeams    through the valley of floooowers
                     Fm             Bb
To the palace of the White Queen     with its white jade towers.

Cm                Fm             Cm              Fm   Ab
The youngest, she sighed then    the clouds drew awaaaay
                    Fm        Bb
And a hundred small fingers   scratched their heads in dismay.

Cm              Fm       Cm               Fm   Ab
From out of the sun a     giant gull came flyyying
                     Fm       Bb
And the children got ready     to sit on its wings.

Cm               Fm           Cm                      Fm  Ab
They waved to the raindrops   as they soared over the treees
                      Fm            Bb
The wind tossed their hair high,    flashing gold on the sea.

Cm               Fm       Cm                  Fm    Ab
They came to the castle    and there they did faaaaall,
                     Fm          Bb
And they saw all the sadness,    through the crystal wall.

Cm               Fm          Cm             Fm    Ab
A princess lay a-sleeping     so gentle and kiiiind
                  Fm                 Bb
Whilst her prince took to battle     with his confused mind.

Cm           Fm               Cm                    Fm  Ab
The clash of bright metal      brought the children feeear,
                    Fm            Bb
But their cloaks of blue satin     dried up all of these tears.

Cm                 Fm          Cm                      Fm  Ab
Thus children held hands and    they spelled out their naaaame
               Fm            Bb
All the golden children      became a golden chain.

Cm           Fm            Cm           Fm  Ab
It lies on a white throne    in a magic plaaace
                Fm          Bb
With a tunic of velvet      and a gown of white lace.

[ Orchestration ]

Cm                Fm     Cm            Fm  Ab
My sword, it lies broken and cast in a laaake
                 Fm             Bb
In a dream I was told that      my princess would wake.
