lyrics

‘Talaria’
Lyrics by Louisa John-Krol

Chorus:

Talaria!
May the winged sandals bear you far
From the bow of the Messenger
Golden in possession of your star

Verse 1:

Rose can be gold
Too bright n’ hot to hold
All your vision wrapped around a soul

Repeat Chorus: ‘Talaria...’ etc

Verse 2:

Words they can sing
Quick Silver on the wing
All your sylphs are dancing in a ring

Repeat Chorus: ‘Talaria...’ (ibid); then again, with parallel variant:

Green Man, Fiddler dive into the Rowan tree
Wine brown, leaping and lithe over the Olive, over the Olive
Trickster, tickle your knee, twirling on your sandals
Fleet as Mercury, leapin’ tree to tree
Jack Green, squiggly bee, in a Corroborree,
Sun gold over the Lee, Didgeridoodle Dee
Red Gum, twiddly dum, twiddly dee to freedom,
Shed some Wattle and Rum into the Apple, into the Elder Tree

Interlude:

Gentle faery, shine sweet berry, make you merry, wine, rosemary,
Bring your fey glory, sing your bird stories, oh we’re green crazy,
So let’s fly... sylvan high

Instrumental, then Chorus + Variant + Third layer of lyric (semi-hidden):

Come fly with me wild love / Cascade the clouds above
Bold in your staff and cloak / Stealthy with every stroke
Embrace the dreamer’s dare / Glissade the gleaming air
Then soar with me my dove / Enjoin the trees of love
Talaria - Tala - la - la - la!
