Well, I met a traveler
Never did learn his name; 
His eyes were bright colored.
But not both the same. 

He shook my hand warmly 
I could tell he was strong
And he answered my questions 
By singing this song

One find it, two lose it
Same everywhere;
One make it, two take it 
Mostly don't care. 

Well, it rained all that night 
And in the morning, rain still 
And I saw the traveler 
At the top of the hill
He was laughing at the thunder
And banging a gong
And, at the top of his voice
He shouted his song. 

One find it, etc.

When the storm had died down 
He came to my door
And he looked really happy 
As he dripped on the floor 
He said, "Please excuse me 
But I won't stay long;
Just give me what you don't want
And then I'll move on, singing

One find it, etc.

Said he had to keep going
But he didn't say where 
When I offered him money 
He refused with a glare.
Then he roared out with laughter 
As ht picked up his gong
And he left without looking back 
Singing his song:

One find it, etc. 
One find it, etc.
