Dawn Chorus

  • Back up the cul-de-sac
    Come on, do your worst
    You quit your job again
    And your train of thought
    If you could do it all again
    A little fairy dust
    A thousand tiny birds singing
    If you must, you must
    Please let me know
    When you've had enough
    Of the white light
    Of the dawn chorus
    If you could do it all again
    You don't know how much
    Pronto pronto, moshi mosh
    Come on, chop chop

    If you could do it all again
    Yeah, without a second thought
    I don't like leaving
    The door shut
    I think I missed something
    But I'm not sure what
    In the middle of the vortex
    The wind picked up
    Shook up the soot
    From the chimney pot
    Into spiral patterns
    Of you, my love

    You take a little piece
    Then you break it off
    It's a bloody racket
    It's the dawn chorus
    If you could do it all again
    Big deal, so what?
    Please let me know
    When you've had enough
    It's the last chance
    O.K. Corral
    If you could do it all again
    This time with style Writer/s: Nigel Timothy Godrich, Thomas Edward Yorke
