anna and ollie they were roasting up a tofu pup the backyard
says ollie, "oh, we're all out of buns but, isn't this fun?"
they they they they were spread upon the lawn drinking lemonade and eating cheese
and later on, beneath the black sky the night erupted there for free
oh anna, take me in with water arms surround me, blow your breezy charms around me
oh anna, you're a house of many rooms and all the secrets deep entombed within you,
i know a few
says anna "ollie, oh, I know a place where you can dive between my peaks into the blue.
you take the red dot-dot-to-dot trail there.
It's sweet for you."
oh ba ba black sheep have you any wool?
yes dear yes dear you know the fridge is always full, for you
oh anna, take me to your eerie heights above paint white letters I you love
oh anna, drop me off a cliff
I fall
says anna ollie oh, you know it's old, it's old, it's old it's true
ollie, ollie, ollie take me far away, show me something new/and they do
oh anna, take me in with water arms surround me/blow your breezy charms around me
oh anna, you're a house of many rooms and all the secrets deep entombed within you/i know a few
ollie ollie in come free, the doors are locked and you can come and stay with me

    General CommentI like when it gets quicker, towards the end, then slower, then quicker again. It's great.

    Anyway, I like this song.

    General CommentThis is actually more of a khaela maricich song than a microphones song. Another version of it called "ana & ollie" is on one of her albums. I'm not sure which was released first.

    General CommentSuch a great song. The fast part at the end makes such a great low-fi dance tune.
