No. 3 - Song (Leonello) - "Sea-girt land of my home"

MIDI File

Leonello: Sea-girt land of my home,
When thy valleys I roam,
Wide world's monarch am I.
Blue vault of heaven my canopy,
What king's sceptre and throne
Stand so firm as my own?
Free from strife and from care,
Show me a kingdom with mine to compare.
Wild birds lullabies sing to me;
Daylight dies!
Shine bright eyes in the twinkling skies.
Night falls; visions to bring to me
Where I rove,
Dreams of love from the stars above.

What though homeless I be?
Roofed by sheltering tree,
Grass-grown couches my bed.
Green leaves twining above my head,
None dare question my sway,
None my rule to gainsay;
Free my kingdom to range,
Many a monarch his own would exchange.
Wild birds lullabies sing to me;
Daylight dies!
Shine bright eyes in the twinkling skies.
Night falls; visions to bring to me
Where I rove,
Dreams of love from the stars above.
   
Chorus: Wild birds lullabies sing to him;
Daylight dies!
Shine bright eyes in the twinkling skies.
Night falls; visions to bring to him
Where he'll rove!
All: Dreams of love,
Leonello: from the stars...
All: Dreams of love from above,
From the stars above.
