lyrics

The first flight of the cackling crow
The faster the falling the swifter the flow
When you first spread your wings and search for the line
Attempted murder doing no time

The rooster is the farmer’s alarm
Atop the rusty weather vane on the old run down barn
But crow you're the wake up for those who sleep in
And wish the barrel was loaded and aimed at your chin

So if you feel the world's out to get you
And you’re just trying to get along
Hold up your head and be proud sing your song and sing it loud
Just don’t do it on a Saturday morn

The mourning dove she calls up the sun
The great grey owl he calls up the moon
The black-feathered succubus has the control
Awakens demons and cuss words from the purest of souls

Don't do it on a Saturday
don’t do it on a Sunday
don’t do it before nine AM
I wish that on your first flight
your wings they wouldn’t work right
you’d spin into a nose dive
I wish you didn’t survive it
Please let me sleep past nine
