lyrics:  

Well I once knew a girl
Who could fly around the world
In seven seconds flat.
And like a fool I chased her
But I couldn't quite keep up.
Tell me lord who could with a girl like that?
So I'm askin' -

Where is my love, oh sweet stars?
Where can she be?
For she's the one I truly have to find.
For at night she comes to me in dreams,
And in the day
I hear her callin' from the backrooms of my mind.

I once knew a gypsy queen
Who played her tambourine.
She set every man to dancin' who came near.
I asked her to be my bride
But she just smiled and shook her head
She said, "I don't ring my bells for just one man to hear."
So I'm askin' -

Where is my love, oh sweet stars?
Where can she be?
Is she up there just a hidin' behind the moon?
For at night I am so lonesome,
All I got here by my side
Is one lonesome song comin' from my mind's backrooms
