A song from Faust, by Goethe. "A lovely dream once came to me..."
Faust: [dancing with the young witch]
A lovely dream once came to me;
I thought I saw an apple-tree.
I climbed it, and a gorgeous pair
Of apples I found hanging there.
Pretty Young Witch:
You men like apples, I believe,
Since Adam had a bite from Eve.
I'm overjoyed and very proud
My garden is so well-endowed.
Mephistopheles: [dancing with the old witch]
I had a wild dream some time back;
I saw a tree with a great big crack.
It had a gaping hole inside -
I like a hole that's nice and wide.
You and your cloven hoof, Sir Knight,
Are very welcome here tonight.
A hole like that needs a big stopper,
So you can plug it good and proper!
Faust song. From Faust, by Goethe (~1800)
