Transcript don't make much sense ;) 

Oh i once knew a man
Never needle in the /sky/star/
Well he taught me to make(?)
Rather even bad
But you never need a nod
Oh i once knew a man
Yeah i once knew a man
Seem like only yesterday
He gone pass this way
Oh i once knew a man

I once knew a man
Nobody ... him adore
Saved by the nav...ed
All men are slumbered
Never /do i hear/to be here/ no more
I once knew a man
Well i once knew a man
Seem like only yesterday
He done pass this way
Oh i once knew a man

Well i once knew a man
Sleepin' on every(?) side
Openin' the door
Bound to the floor
Started talking(?) for a ride
Well i once knew a man
Oh yeah i once knew a man
Well it seem like only yesterday
He gone pass this way
Well i once knew a man.  up
