Stone lyrics

Well once I was a stone, a many years ago
Into a pool was thrown, a many years ago
Time passed by, the pool ran dry, excavated was I
And tempered and beat in a fiery heat by the hand of a man
Who's name was Dan, Dan the blacksmith

Well once I was a sword, a many years ago
And my blade was broad, a many years ago
Worn with pride, into battle I'd ride at a warriors side
And I cut and I killed and I was lost in a field
And I soon did rust, I corrode to dust, oh my

Well once I was a daisy, a many years ago
In pastures green and lazy, a many years ago
But I was eat by a goat who fell in a moat and forgetting to float
He sunk like a lead and stayed until dead but was relieved to find
Oh Lord, just how kind it all was

Well once I was a grub, a many years ago
And I lived in muck and mud, a many years ago
But on the very first noon I became a cocoon that resembled a prune
When the good Lord was done in the warmth of the sun
I shed my skins and I dried my wings and I flew away

Well once I was a bullfrog, had to struggle for survival
And once I was a carp and lived in waters ornamental
And once I was a myna bird, quoting verses from the Bible
Said, "Pretty boy, pretty boy, St.Luke"

Well once I was a mule, a many years ago
But my master he treat me cruel, a many years ago
By and by I was sick, couldn't move to his kick, so he took out a stick
And hit it right cross my back to an almighty crack
And to his dismay, I passed away into the blue

Then I was born a human baby, a many years ago
Well I remember I was born unto a lady, a many years ago
All our hopes they were piled on the back of a child
That turned out to be wild, sent the devil a prayer
And caused the parson to swear, so I took my leave
To lie and thieve my way to jail

Well I've been tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor known good times and disaster
But now I've found a teacher and the teacher has a master
And the master is perfection, so he helps us get there faster
Don't need no proof because that's the truth and I'll drink to that
