    I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride,
    With sword and pistol by my side.
    Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade.
    Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade.
    The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five:
    But I am still alive.

    I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide.
    And with the sea I did abide.
    I sailed a schooner round the Horn of Mexico.
    I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow.
    And when the yards broke off, they said that I got killed:
    But I am living still.

    I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide;
    Where steel and water did collide.
    A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado,
    I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below.
    They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound:
    But I am still around.
    I'll always be around,.
    And around and around and around and around.

    I fly a starship across the Universe divide.
    And when I reach the other side,
    I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can.
    Perhaps I may become a highwayman again.
    Or I may simply be a single drop of rain;
    But I will remain.
    And I'll be back again,

    And again and again and again and again.
