By the dried up stream
We slit our throats and dreamed
But when the building's burned
Was there some concerned

Mother laid in bed
What was it she said?
Gather all your worldly jewels
And scatter them like fools

Don't you make a fuss
Days so perilous
When day is done we'll ride
Who cares what we find

Another misspent night
We thought we got it right
The driver lost a wheel
The ice turned into steel

They shivered like refugees
Way down on our knees
By the dried up stream
We slit our throats and dreamed

But when the building's burned
Was there some concerned
Mother laid in bed
