Will you sing me a story, dear Mama
Of a maiden fair, locked away in a tower?
Will you tell of the knight who must save her?
And of the villainous dragon he must face?
Mama, will you tell me the legend
Of Merlin, the fabled magician?
Will you speak of the wands and spells?
And of the apprentice who must learn them?
Oh Mama, can you make me laugh
With accounts of quick-change comedians?
Will you make me smile at the painted clowns?
And become amazed with the flying acrobats?
So please Mama will you,
Make me laugh.
Make me gaze in wonder.
Will you sing me a story?
