Lyrics

and the dream is running
... hungry when ...

And he comes, he comes to this little hut, and he knocks on the door. A little woman comes out. He says do you have anything for me. And the lady says you know look, I don't have any food already made, but here is some lentils and here is some rice, please cook them yourself.

And he comes, he comes to this little hut, and he knocks on the door. A little woman comes out. He says do you have anything for me.

(See he takes his little pot and he puts his lentils and his rice in there and he puts some water)

And the lady says you know look, I don't have any food already made, but here is some lentils and here is some rice, please cook them yourself.

(It's a very very simple)

You know I can help you that way.

And finally he's ready and he takes and he sits and with a little plate he made out of the leaves

(See he takes his little pot and he puts his lentils and his rice in there and he puts some water in ther and starts cooking and it takes a long time, the wood's really wet and smoking, and it's--it's very very agonizing.)

And finally he's ready and he takes and he puts it on a plate he has made out of the leaves.
