- LyricsThis old man I've talked about
Broke his own heart poured it in the ground
Big red tree grew up and out
Throws up its leaves, spins round and round
I know all this and more
- LyricsSo he's lying on top again
Just like Gepetto and his doll
And he's running around again
And I can't get him out of this house
And if you bore him
- LyricsMeet him by the road
There's a dog went running
Picking through spit out leaves
A dog won't even touch
Meant to shoot that dog long ago
- LyricsBaby's playing dead in cellar
Gave her water just got paler
Grass stains, backburns, she's a screamer
She's just dusted, leave her
If you see her, don't upset her
- Lyrics"Give it to me, please", I said to God
It's only fair
Instead, he sent three angels
To move the river
So now it flows by my house
