I chase your every footstep
When you call the tune I'm ready
My lady of the meadows,
You've thrown the stick for your dog's trick
The long road is a rainbow and the pot of gold lies there.
You'll find me everywhere.

To hide his smock of red,
In which to hide my head.
I'm simple in my sadness,
Then I'm down straining at the lead

Of balloons at every fair:
Designed to make you stare.
The thread that holds me down.
In the lights of every town.
