Sprout and the bean Lyrics by Joanna Newsom

 

Sprout and the bean by Joanna Newsom


I slept all day
Awoke with distaste
And I railed
And I raved
That the difference between
The sprout and the bean
It is a golden ring
It is a twisted string

And you can ask the counsellor
And you can ask the king
And I'll say the same thing
And it's a funny thing

Should we go outside
Should we go outside
Should we break some bread
Are you interested

And as I said
I slept as though dead
Dreaming seamless dreams
Of lead

When you go away
I am big-boned and fey
In the dust of the day
In the dirt of the day

And Danger! Danger!
Drawing near them was a white coat
And Danger! Danger!
Drawing near them was a broad boat
And the water! Water!
Running clear beneath a white throat
And the hollow chatter of the talking of the Tadpoles

Who know the outside
Should we go outside
Should we break some bread
Are you interested
