Joanna Newsom - Clam Crab Cockle Cowrie (Ys Street Band Version)

I do as I please
Now I’m on my knees
Your skin is something that I stir into my tea
And I am watching you
and you are starry, starry, starry

Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie - Joanna Newsom

I don’t feel comfortable declaring that I have a favorite Joanna Newsom song, but if I were to ever do that this would break the top 3. Ok, top 5. Ok they’re all tied for number 1.

I do as I please
Now I’m on my knees
Your skin is something that I stir into my tea
And I am watching you
and you are starry, starry, starry
and I’m tumbling down, and I check a frown
Well, just look around
It’s why I love this town
just see me serenaded hourly! celebrated sourly!
dedicated dourly; waltzing with the open sea
Clam, crab, cockle, cowrie
will you just look at me?

clam, crab, cockle, cowrie - joanna newsom (EP version)

there are some mornings when the sky looks like a road
there are some dragons who were built to have and hold
and some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly
and some great bellies ache with many bumblebees
they sting so terribly
