about

This is my October song, happy Halloween!

lyrics

The clouds come down on the autumn lawn
And soak the ivy through
While she stays calm in her cold stone home
And hums so soft for you

Now the bars are all scrubbed and the pantry's in order
And everything's gleaming, just like you told her
She's keeping canaries and jackdaws and finches
And sleeping in cupboards and shrinking by inches
For you, for you

And she won't mind
If it takes some time
To get through
To you

The boys take heart that she plays her part
And tell you what to do
They say, "Love her once, then sell her bones
When she cuts them loose for you."

Now the linen's perfumed by the sachets in drawers
And everything's just in the shade that you ordered
She's keeping canaries and jackdaws and finches
And sleeping in cupboards and shrinking by inches
For you, for you

And she won't mind
If it takes some time
To get through
To you
