Those Crows

(Words and music by and © Talis Kimberley, 1992)

You sleep so late, you sleep so long – Were you up all night?
Did your friends come calling from across the way?
For your especial delight
Is there flight in what they tell you – Have they wisdom in their wings
Are they teaching you the language – Maybe a hundred other things?

Oh, those crows, they’ve been at it again
They’ve been telling you tales, you were listening to the rain
They keep you amused when you’re lying awake
And leave behind a few black feathers again
Oh, those crows, was it because of the name?
They’ve been telling you stories through your window pane
If the window’s left open they’re so bold and vain
They leave behind a few black feathers again…

You sleep so late, you sleep so long – Were you up all night?
Did your friends come calling you out to play?
Did they let you borrow flight?
Take my greeting to the white horse – Take my greeting to the sea
Take my greeting to the stone rings – For they’ve been so good to me…

Oh, those crows, they’ve been at it again
They’ve been telling you tales, you were listening to the rain
They keep you amused when you’re lying awake
And leave behind a few black feathers again
Oh, those crows, was it because of the name?
They’ve been telling you stories through your window pane
If the window’s left open they’re so bold and vain
They leave behind a few black feathers again…

Are they fools and ragged vagrants? – Is there wisdom in their wings?
Are they teaching you the language – And maybe a hundred other things?

Oh, those crows, they’ve been at it again
They’ve been telling you tales, you were listening to the rain
They keep you amused when you’re lying awake
And leave behind a few black feathers again
Oh, those crows, was it because of the name?
They’ve been telling you stories through your window pane
If the window’s left open they’re so bold and vain
They leave behind a few black feathers again…
