"The Coming of the Troll" from the album "The King of Elfland's Daughter". Epic album, if only for Mary Hopkin's voice. Good song for the rotary fraternity!!

Nice that you reminded me, I needed to find it again to get it on CD.

The Coming Of The Troll

Over hedges and ditches and bushes and stiles
Miles and miles
I'm running, I'm running,
A message I bring to shout or sing
Jump and spin
I'm humming, I'm humming,
Like a top, I never stop
Whirling, twirling round
Look at me, it's plain to see
The world is in my hand.

I am free, I am free
I'm so free nothing can stop me
I'm as wild as the wind
I can laugh, I can sing
And you can't catch me
I am free, I am free

Light as a feather and quick as the wind
Like a bird on the wind
I'm flying, I'm flying
Faster than lightning, never a sound
Over the ground
I'm flying, I'm flying
Like a top, I never stop
Whirling, twirling round
Look at me, it's plain to see
The world is in my hand.
