Magpie
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


Feed the kittens in the kitchen.
Set food out for the strays.
Try hard to do your best.
The magpie will have his way.

Fill your mouth with berries
By the full light of the moon.
Work all night if you have to.
The magpie comes at noon.
Shore up the crucifixes
Above the archways and the doors.
The magpie will come at midday.
And you will go down on all fours.

And when the cherries white(?) with blossoms,
Be ready and be brave.
And remember what we had here,
When there was something left to save.

a very underrated mountain goats song tbh, the instrumentals are almost aggressive, its wonderful, fits the lyrics well

I'd love a tMG album that went hard on this style. Give me more!

The magpie will come at midday
And you will go down on all fours

And when the cherries white with blossoms
Be ready and be brave
And remember what we had here
When there was something left to save

No One

Remember what we had here when there was something left to save
