scarecrow

scream thy last scream

see Emily play

she took a long cold look

Swan Lee



scarecrow

songstories!

The black and green scarecrow
As everyone knows
Stood with a bird on his hat

and straw everywhere, he didn't care
He stood in a field where barley grows

His head did no thinking
His arms didn't move
Except then the wind cut up rough

and mice ran around on the ground
He stood in a field where barley grows

The black and green scarecrow
Was sadder than me
But now he's resigned to his fate

'cause life's not unkind, he doesn't mind
He stood in a field where barley grows




scream thy last scream

songstories!

Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket
Blam, blam, your pointers, point your pointers
Wattle with apples to granchy Mrs. Stores
She'll be scrubbing buffles on all fours
Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket Fling your arms madly, old lady with a daughter
Flat top supposes, Moses, hoses
Hiddle and Diddle are sitting back
Watching the telly til all hours
Telly time
Fling your arms madly, old lady with a daughter

Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket
Blam, blam, your pointers, point your pointers
Wattle with apples to grawnchy Mrs. Stores
She'll be scrubbing buffles on all fours
Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket




see Emily play

songstories!

Emily tries but misunderstands, ah oo!
She's often inclined to borrow
Somebody's dreams til tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Soon after dark Emily cries, ah oo!
Gazing through trees in sorrow
Hardly a sound til tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Put on a gown that touches the ground, ah oo!
Float on a river forever and ever, Emily!
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play





she took a long cold look

songstories!

She took a long cold look at me
And smiled and gazed all over my arm
She loves to see me get down to ground
She hasn't time just to be with me
Her face between all she means to be
To be extreme, just to be extreme
A broken pier on the wavy sea
She wonders why for she wants to see
But I got up and I stomped around
And hid the piece where the trees touch the ground

The end of truth that lay out the time
Spent lazing here on a painting dream
A mile or more in a foreign clime
To see farther inside of me

And looking high up into the sky
I breathe as the water streams over me




Swan Lee

songstories!

Swan Lee got up at the Running Foot pow-wow
Heading from the fire to his waiting canoe
Chattering Squaw untied the wigwam door
The chief blew smoke rings two by two!

The land in silence stands

Swan Lee, his boat by the bank in the darkness
Loosened the rope in the creek is entwined
A feather from the wing of a wild young eagle
Pointed to the land where his fortune he'd find

The land in silence stands

Swan Lee paddled on from the land of his fathers
His eyes scanned the undergrowth on either side
From the shore hung a hot, heavy, creature infested
Tropic, Swan Lee had a bow by his side

The land in silence stands

Swan Lee kept time, half on land, half on water
Grizzly bear and raccoon his fare
He followed his ears to the great water fall
Swan Lee knew deep down that his squaw was there!

The land in silence stands

Suddenly the rush of the mighty great thunder
Confronted Swan Lee as his song he sang
In the dawn, with his squaw, he was battling homewards
It was all written down by Long Silas Lang

The land in silence stands
The land in silence stands
The land in silence stands
