I was once out strolling one very hot summer's day
When I thought I'd lay myself down to rest in a bit field of tall grass
I lay there in the sun and felt it caressing my face
As I fell asleep and dreamed

I dreamed, I was in a Hollywood movie
And that I was the star of the movie, this really blew my mind
The fact that me, an overfed, long-haired, leaping gnome
Should be the star of a Hollywood movie, but there I was

I was taken to a place, the hall of the mountain kings
I stood high upon a mountain top, naked to the world
In front of every kind of girl

There was long ones, tall ones, short ones
Brown ones, black ones, round ones, big ones, crazy ones
Out of the middle, came a lady
She whispered in my ear something crazy, she said

Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl

I thought to myself what could that mean?
Am I going crazy or is this just a dream?
Now, wait a minute

I know, I'm lying in a field of grass somewhere
So it's all in my head
And then I heard her say one more time

Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl

I could feel hot flames of fire roaring at my back
As she disappeared, but soon she returned
In her hand was a bottle of wine, in the other, a glass

She poured some of the wine from the bottle into the glass
And raised it to her lips
And just before she drank it, she said

Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
