By Winter's light on Solstice night I watched the Wild Hunt go-
With silver bells and savage yells, my frozen heart laid low-
I watched them ride to the mortal side but I never tried to leave-
I'd been self banned to Faerieland, forever there to grieve-

The hunting horn and the sun reborn called Them from human ground-
The Faerie Queen caused quite a scene with the artifact she'd "found"-
A little wooden fiddle that she stole from mortal man-
She played with glee so perfectly as only Faeries can!

(Rights of Man)

That simple song, before too long made my whole body shake-
For deep inside, no more to hide, my soul was now awake!
The Faerie chain that bound my pain was shattered by her tune-
My frozen heart would break apart! I had to get out soon!

BE IT CARVED FROM OUT THE FINEST WOOD
OR STRUNG WITH SILVER STRING
ONLY MORTAL TRUST OR FAERIE DUST
CAN MAKE A FIDDLE SING!

Then suddenly, Her Majesty gazed at me cold and hard-
"I like to know where you would go, my humble hapless bard!"
"The world out there is cruel to bear, but if you needs be free-
Prove that you can, my mortal man, play better than the Sidhe!"

(Queen's solo)

Her challenge played, all bets were laid, she beckoned unto me-
I took the little fiddle and I held it tenderly-
Remembering the painful thing from which I'd run away-
I made the choice with this new voice to face it here today!

(Boy's solo)

My heart's refrain had cured my pain and the Queen said unto me-
"Your inner fear has held you here, and now my lad, you're free!"
"This fiddling pride I'll lay aside, it's brought me little joy"-
I've lost one whirl to a red haired girl, and now to you my boy!
