Giant's Rolling Pin

Album: Unrepentant Geraldines (2014)
  • Beth and Marlene's pies
    With help from Caroline
    After just one slice
    You can uncover any lie
    That's why the NSA
    And now the FBI
    Want to be the ones who control
    Beth and Marlene's pies
    With help from Caroline
    So basically that's why

    I'm off to find the giant's rolling pin
    Legend says it does exist
    If you don't stop looking for it
    I'm off to find the giant's rolling pin
    Legend says it will bake for the world
    (Oh it will yes it really will)

    In case we have
    Rolled out our little world too flat
    Then the giant's rolling pin
    Will roll the truth out
    So that the whole world can dig in
    To Beth and Marlene's pies

    Everybody spies
    So why the big surprise?
    That is why the working woman
    Well deserves a slice
    (Mississippi mud or Key lime?)
    Now the nice taxman
    In every state has tried
    To say that it's in his jurisdiction to decide
    Who gets a bit of pie
    So honestly that's why

    I'm off to find the giant's rolling pin
    Legend says it does exist
    If we don't stop looking for it
    I'm off to find the giant's rolling pin
    Legend says it will bake for the world
    (Oh it will yes it really will)

    If in fact we had
    Rolled our little world too flat
    Then the giant's rolling pin
    Would roll the truth out
    So that the whole world can dig in
    The whole world can dig in
    To Beth and Marlene's pies
    With help from Caroline
    For a window of time you can see through any lie
    With help from Caroline
    And the giant's rolling pin Writer/s: MYRA ELLEN TORI AMOS
