There was a boy, a very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye, but very wise was he
And then one day, a magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return”
