One day lo and behold a magic man popped out of a bottle
I did not know just what to do, I did not know what could I do?
Do you know what you need
The man said to me
You need me
I’m the bottle man for free
Make a wish and I’ll give it to you
No matter what I’ll do it for you
I did not question
I needed a lot
I did not think
Or give it a thought
I wished to have the biggest house
I wished to be tall and not grow out.
The man closed his eyes and to my surprise
It all showed up, it was not a lie.
I looked at the bottle man and said with glee
May I wish for anything with no if’s or and’s in between?
The man gave out a hardy laugh
Of course my lad, don’t give it a thought
So I did not give it a thought
I wished and wished and wished a lot
I had it all
I had the world and all in between.
I told the man that I had everything
He laughed once again as he looked at me
Little man you do not know
Quiet what your doing to your soul
Would you tell me, bottle man
Just what am I doing to myself,
Oh with every wish so satisfied
It leaves you wanting I can not lie
So you see my lad it is a curse
to want and want and want immerse
My heart was empty and hollow with greed
And still so I did not heed
I went on wishing
Wishing on without a stop
Never wish this
give it a thought,
and just as you heed the warning of the man who ate
heed the warning of the man with this fate
