If Iím richer than the King of Seas, You just tell me to catch the bait, All my kingdoms and my treasuries Iíd spill out and not hesitate! A crystal house on the hill for her. Bring a cage and I will live in it! All my silver springs and ores, All my gemstones infinite... If Iím poor like some wretched hound And my life is hopelessly amiss. Lord, please help me turn it all around! Donít drive me into the abyss! A crystal house on the hill for her. Bring a cage and I will live in it! All my silver springs and ores, All my gemstones infinite... No one else shall I compare to you Even if they torture me in hell! Look at how I revere you, My Madonna of Raphael! A crystal house on the hill for her. Bring a cage and I will live in it! All my silver springs and ores, All my gemstones infinite...
