My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue,
A wondrous woven magic in bits of blue and gold

There came a man of fortune, a drifter passing by.
And a coat of many colors, yellow, green on either side.
He moved with some uncertainty, as if he didn't know
Once he reached for something golden, hanging from a tree,

He sat down on a river rock and turned into a toad.
And I wept to see him suffer, though I didn't know him well.
As I watched in sorrow, there suddenly appeared
In times of deepest darkness, I've seen him dressed in black.
He's come to take me back.
