The bird of happiness nested in my hair,
Brushed away all my world weary cares,
Breathed the softest song into my ear,
Brought me everything my hearts craves.
The litte boat woven from beautiful dreams,
Rocked its way from rivulet to stream,
Oh! Steer gently the bend, little boat
You carry the peace I so long sought.
The boat sank one stormy day,
The bird? she flew away.
For without perch, without anchor,
Dreams and happiness disappear.
