Cat Stevens - The Boy With A Moon & Star On His Head Lyrics

A gardener's daughter stopped me on my way, on the day I wasTo wedIt is you who I wish to share my body with she saidWe'll find a dry place under the sky with a flower for a bedAnd for my joy I will give you a boy with a moon andStar on his head.Her silver hair flowed in the air laying waves across the sunHer hands were like the white sands, and her eyes hadDiamonds on.We left the road and headed up to the top of theWhisper woodAnd we walked 'till we came to where the holy magnolia stood.And there we laid cool in the shade singing songs andMaking love...With the naked earth beneath us and the universe above.The time was late my wedding wouldn't wait I was sad butI had to go,So while she was asleep I kissed her cheek for cheerio.The wedding took place and people came from manyMiles aroundThere was plenty merriment, cider and wine aboundBut out of all that I recall I remembered the girl I met'cause she had given me something that my hear could notForget.A year had passed and everything was just as it was a yearBefore...As if was a year before...Until the gift that someone left, a basket by my door.And in there lay the fairest little baby crying to be fed,I got down on my knees and kissed the moon and star onHis head.As years went by the boy grew high and the village lookedOn in aweThey'd never seen anything like the boy with the moon andStar before.And people would ride from far and wide just to seek theWord he spreadI'll tell you everything I've learned, and love is all...he said.
