Sprout and the Bean
Joanna Newsom Lyrics


I slept all day
I woke with distaste
And I railed
And I raved

That the difference between
The sprout and the bean
It is a golden ring
It is a twisted string
And you can ask the counselor;
You can ask the king;
And they'll say the same thing;
And it's a funny thing:

Should we go outside?
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?

And as I said
I slept as though dead
Dreaming seamless dreams of lead

When you go away
I am big-boned and fey
In the dust of the day
And in the dirt of the day

And the danger! Danger! Drawing near them was a white coat
And the danger! Danger! Drawing near them was a broad boat
And the water! Water! Running clear beneath a white throat
And the hollow chatter of the talking of the tadpoles

Who know th'outside!
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?

I slept all day
awoke with distaste
and I railed,
and I raved

That the difference between
the sprout and the bean
is a golden ring,
it is a twisted string.
And you can ask the counsellor;
you can ask the king;
and they'll say the same thing;
and it's a funny thing:

Should we go outside?
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?

And as I said,
I slept as though dead
dreaming seamless dreams of lead.

When you go away,
I am big-boned and fey
in the dust of the day,
in the dirt of the day.

and Danger! Danger! Drawing near them was a white coat,
and Danger! Danger! drawing near them was a broad boat,
And the water! water! running clear beneath a white throat,
and the hollow chatter of the talking of the Tadpoles,

who know th'outside!
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?

I take it as a personal offence this isn’t on spotify

shoopdawoop VI

spotify literally exploits artists, they get like 15 pennies if we listen on there. Even youtube pays artists more.

Johnathan Cooper

Fudge Spotify. Especially if this ain’t on it.
