Matilda Mother Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

There was a king who ruled the land
His majesty was in command
With silver eyes the scarlet eagle
Showered silver on the people

Oh, oh mother
Tell me more

Why'd you have to leave me there
Hanging in my infant air
You only have to read the lines
They're scribbly black and everything shines

Across the stream
With wooden shoes
Bells to tell the king the news
A thousand misty riders climb up
Higher once upon a time

Wondering and dreaming
The words have different meaning
Yes they did

(Musical Interlude)

Through all the time spent in that room
The dolls house, darkness, old perfume
And fairy stories held me high
On clouds of sunlight floating by

Oh, oh mother
Tell me more
Tell me more....

Aaaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah (x4)
