lyrics

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

I was young and I was bold
I never did as I was told
And on a cold December morn
I left the town where I was born

Didn’t know where I was bound
Now I’ve traveled half the world around
Those things you only read in books
Well, I was there, I had a look!

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

Well, I met a man from Babylon
He taught me how to sing this song
I sang it from a balcony
A dozen girls called out to me

The eleventh was the prettiest
She came upstairs in a blue dress
The clock struck twelve, she ran down again
She left her shoe, but not her name

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

I plucked an apple from the tree
A woman, she walked up to me
I know that it’s hard to believe
But she told me that her name was Eve

I asked her, “Where is Paradise?”
“Everywhere!” was her advice
Then she asked me for a bite
Well I gave her one, ‘cause I’m polite!

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!

Well, I know a man who used to beg
Now his goose lays golden eggs
Scheherazade’s a friend of mine
I tell her stories all the time

Dear ladies and kind gentlemen
This tale has nearly reached its end
But if you’d like to hear some more
Surely you know where to pour

Take a glass and fill it high
Your tales are taller than the sky
Grab a mug and fill it up
My dear you’ve had enough!
