No. 5 - Song - Hana - "I know nothing of life"

MIDI File

Hana: Ah! Ah!
I know nothing of life
'Mid the glare and the glitter
'Mid the hurry and strife,
And the struggle for gold.
I know nothing of love;
Is it sweet? Is it bitter?
Ah! but the world is a story I've never been told,
I've never been told!
For friendship I turn
To the birds and the bees;
My music I learn
From the song of the breeze;
The dew on the grass
Scatters pearls as I pass;
No queen has such jewels as these!
The woods are my book,
Full of Nature's romances,
I people each nook
With a myriad fancies;
The temple's my palace,
The shrine is my throne,
I'm Queen in a world of my own,
Queen in a world of my own,
I'm Queen in a world of my own!
I know nothing of life
'Mid the glare and the glitter
'Mid the hurry and strife,
And the struggle for gold.
I know nothing of love;
Is it sweet? Is it bitter?
Ah! but the world is a story I've never been told,
I've never been told!
Ah! Ah! Ah!
