lyrics

My little candid crow
You're an odd bird, don't you know?
Feathers pure white as snow
No wait, more pure than snow
My little red eyed albino
Dance!

'Neath the pale moon light
That's when you shine most bright
Like an apparition in the night
The holy ghost in graceful flight
In all the horror of holy fright
Fly!

Dance on the corn row
Dance on the dirt road
Dance on the scare crow
Glistenin' in moon glow!

Fly as the fields burn
Fly as the world turns
Fly as the flood waters rise
Waters rise, waters subside!

While on this majestic moon-lit scene
On this hallowed eve
Amid the changin' of the flames of leaves
Between night shade of evergreens
Between the certain and uncertainty
Come fly, let's fly, come fly with me!

Strange and by what awful hand
And if not real then still
At who's command
Wrought in me
Fantasy
To peek upon this strange beast
Laced in serendipity?
Fly, dance, come fly with me!

Dance on the corn row
Dance on the dirt road
Dance on the scare crow
Glistenin' in moon glow!

Fly as the fields burn
Fly as the world turns
Fly as the flood waters rise
Waters rise, waters subside!
