Pearl Lenore, born in a small town
Never had many friends, kept mostly to herself
Had few books on her shelf
A plain girl, so quiet and homely
Moved off to the city
To study music carefully

'Til one day her friend Emily
Said she had something for her to see
She'd been playing with ouija
Had a message coming through
From someone she once knew

Our Pearl never wanted to try it out
But the moment she did
She met a girl with prose and poetry
Flowing from her mouth
A girl with red hair who had lived across the sea
Had a message to share with Pearl and Pearl only

So quietly she said

Many moons ago I lived
Again I come
Patience Worth, Patience Worth, Patience Worth
Is my name
Wait, I would speak with thee
If thou shall live, then so shall I
I make my bread at thy hearth
Good friends, let us be merry
The time for work is passed
Let the tabby drowse
And wink her wisdom to the firelogs

They met fame with fire and frenzy
But as soon as they came, they were gone
Washed into obscurity
