Lyrics

Bring me a whiskey
Get me a beer
What's that song
Bring me a whiskey
Get me a beer
What's that song
I like to hear?

The dreaming child
The father proud and strong
I kinda like that song
The one about the Earlie King

Daddy, I can see him
His coat's so shiny bright
Behind us in the night
I can see the Earlie King

Daddy, I can hear them
They're singing just for me
Can't you hear? Can't you see
The daughters of the Earlie King?

Spill the milk! Spill the meat!
Life is bitter and death is sweet!
All the bacon that a boy can eat!
Come along with me!

And the bad bells ring!
And the bad bells ring!
And I am running
Still running from the Earlie King!

And there's nothing there, nothing at all
Fairytales and folderol
Nothing to hear and nothing to see
Wind in the willow and light in the tree

The dreaming child
The father proud and strong
I kinda like that song
The one about the Earlie King

Daddy, can you hear me?
It's got so hard to speak
I'll kiss your bristly cheek
And go with the Earlie King

Up from the table
My brother's tiny soul
All gone, swallowed whole
Taken by the Earlie King

Spill the milk! Spill the meat!
Life is bitter and death is sweet!
All the bacon that a boy can eat!
Come along with me!

And the bad bells ring!
And the bad bells ring!
And I am running
Still running from the Earlie King!

And there's nothing there, nothing at all
Fairytales and folderol
Nothing to hear and nothing to see
Wind in the willow and light in the tree

The bad bells ring!
And the bad bells ring!
