I saw two magpies A girl and a boy One for sorrow Two for joy With no salutes I move away And long to face, face ,face Face down fear
I saw two magpies There was a girl and a boy One for sorrow Two for joy Content to cry No more to lie I move away And lie in truth
Look two magpies A girl and a boy One for sorrow And two for joy Three for a girl Four for a boy I saw two magpies Two for joy
Content to cry No more to lie In truth with you To face down fear Content to cry No more to lie No more to lie And face down fear

Arthur Danhiez from BelgiumDoes anybody know if the lyrics are related to Pellinor's lament in TH White's the queen of air and darkness (the witch in the forest) ? it somewhat shares some lyrics. i'm reading it in french but this is the translation in english : I saw seven magpies, one for sorrow, two for joy, three for a wedding, four for a boy.
