LADY OF THE LAKE

Carole King and Toni Stern

Lyrics: 

When I was a boy, I knew the lady of the lake
And I was her favorite child
She wore a white gown, her yellow hair hanging down
And her voice, like a shadow, was gentle and kind

Every day to the sea we would go, hand-in-hand
And build great white castles
Civilizations in sand
And I would paint her pictures with a seaweed brush
And gather seashell jewels for her
As stars watched over us

When I was a boy, I knew the lady of the lake
And I was her favorite child
She wore a white gown, her yellow hair hanging down
And her voice, like a shadow, was gentle and kind

Sometimes we'd set sail straight for the sun
As down the dome of sky it fled
And sometimes we'd try to catch it as it spun
In the deep-sea comfort of its sea-green bed

The lady of the lake is gone, lost with childhood's mind
But the intoxication lingers on and I remember the time
When I would paint her pictures with a seaweed brush
And gather seashell jewels for her
As stars watched over us

When I was a boy, I knew the lady of the lake
And I was her favorite child
When I was a boy, I knew the lady of the lake
And I was her favorite child...
