The Man In The Wilderness
Natalie Merchant

The man in the wilderness
He asked of me
How many strawberries grow in the salt sea?
And i answered him, as i thought good
As many a ship sails in the wood

The man in the wilderness
He asked me, why
His hare could swim and his pig could fly?
And i answered him, as i thought best
They were both born in a cuckoo's nest

The man in the wilderness
Asked me to tell
Tell all the sands in the sea and i counted them well
And with the grain, well, not one more
I answered him, you go make sure

Said with the grain, well, not one more
I answered him, you go make sure
I answered him, you...you go make sure
