Lyrics

Jonathan:
I ride up with the Watcher
Don't have much to talk about
But it's okay, it's okay, it's okay,
This will all work out


I ride up with the Watcher
Don't have much but pen in hand
But it's okay, it's okay, it's okay,
I can understand


And arrive here, arrive here at Black Lake
Here we are and what do I find but
Nothing but, nothing but ...
Nothing but lonely stuff

Try to reach out, reach out at Black Lake
Here I am and what do I find but
Nothing but, nothing but ...
Nothing but lonely stuff


I shake hands with her father
Don't know what will happen next
But it's okay, it's okay, it's okay
All part of the test


I see smiles from the mama
Don’t know then if she knows too
But it's okay, it's okay, it's okay
It all must be true


And arrive here, arrive here at Black Lake
Here we are and what do I find but
Nothing but, nothing but ...
Nothing but lonely stuff

Try to reach out, reach out at Black Lake
Here I am and what do I find but
Nothing but, nothing but ...
Nothing but lonely stuff


Beauty like Xi Shi in front of me
 (Is it she?)
Play a ping pong table game
 (This is so lame)
And I think she inquires of me

Xi Shi:
 (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)
Now what is your name?


Jonathan:
When I get scared
I start to turtle
Inside my shell
I hide away


I get so mad
Why am I so mad?
I can't get close
Am I so mad?
She seems so sad
When Xi Shi disappears
And I'm so mad


I start to turtle
Why am I so mad?
I start to freak
Am I so mad?
She seems so sad
When Xi Shi disappears
And I'm so mad


And we gathered at the dining hall
Where we sat around a table small


Xi Shi gave her ring to the Wise One there
 Sitting next to me
And asked the name on it
 so graven with care
The Wise One could not take it at all
And gave it back to her with nary a stall


All I could do in disbelief was stare
As she starts to laugh,
 laugh and play
While Xi Shi lay her head on table with care
When she starts to smile,
 she gets her way


And the funny thing that wasn't right
Only time my eyes caught Xi Shi that night
Was after I prayed for a wife
After I prayed for a wife


So what should I do now?
What then should I do?


After I
After I
After I pray for a wife?


After I pray for her...
