Blackbird, blackbird, blackbird

Follow him down in the valley at night

Whisper my love in his ear tonight

Speak my words; bring him back to the light

 

Wildcat, wildcat, wildcat

Follow him down in the valley every day

Should the shadows threaten him, drive away

Use your claws, use your fangs, lead the way

 

Nightmare, nightmare, nightmare

Follow him down in the valley 'til he's free

Run beside him; should he tire be his steed

Let him ride you; take the path back to me

When he mounts you; bring him home back to me

 

Blackbird, wildcat, nightmare

Follow him down in the valley all his days

May he know I'm beside him all the way

That my spell will protect him on his way

That this spell will protect him all his days

 

Blackbird, wildcat, wildcat...
