Subject: Lyr Req: sugar fish
From: GUEST,Gilly
Date: 10 Feb 08 - 05:47 PM

we were in a club the other night and a man sang a song that i thought was lovely.
does anyone know what it is or who did it?
I can only remember a little bit that went:-

"If we catch a 100 sugarfish... and if we eat them our dream will come true"

or something like that, i didn't get chance to ask him about it and i probably won't see him again.
thanks
Gilly

John Martyn, "Fairy Tale Lullaby"

If you want to ride a rainbow, come with me
And I will take you to the magic purple sea
And maybe we will find a thousand sugar fish
When you eat them they will grant your every wish
And if you want your friends to come
Then bring them all along
If you want to catch a star then walk my way
I will take you where the night is always day
You can follow me if you really try
Maybe we will find a rainbow to teach it to fly
I will take you through the magic dancing wood
And I will take you where the goblins are all good
I will take you where the elfs and pixies do sing
And I will take you round the magic fairy ring
Bow your head and let your eyelids close on down
Where we're going you won't need to bring your frown
You will find that all the things that I have said
Will come true when you are lying in your bed



That it?

If so, it's from

Subject: Lyr Add: FAIRYTALE LULLABY (John Martyn)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 14 Feb 08 - 04:30 AM

I think it should be formatted like this:

FAIRYTALE LULLABY
John Martyn

1. If you want to ride a rainbow, come with me
And I will take you to the magic purple sea
And maybe we will find a thousand sugar fish.
When you eat them they will grant your every wish.

CHORUS: And if you want your friends to come,
Then bring them all along.

2. If you want to catch a star then walk my way.
I will take you where the night is always day.
You can follow me if you really try.
Maybe we will find a rainbow to teach it to fly.

3. I will take you through the magic dancing wood
And I will take you where the goblins are all good.
I will take you where the elves and pixies do sing
And I will take you round the magic fairy ring.

4. Bow your head and let your eyelids close on down.
Where we're going you won't need to bring your frown.
You will find that all the things that I have said
Will come true when you are lying in your bed.

[On the albums "London Conversation" (1968) and "The John Martyn Story" (2006).]
