"Cut-Out Witch" as written by and Robert E. Jr. Pollard....
Do you suppose she could change your life?
If she could then I wish she would
Do you suppose she could save my life?
If she could then I think she should

It's another busy day for the cut-out witch
Silver threads for our heads need another stitch
Golden needles in our eyes then we realize
It's another busy day for the cut out witch

And could she change this wrong into a right?
Say pretty please and I think she might
Cause if she won't then you'll fall and bust
And turn to dust and so I think she must

It's another busy day for the cut-out witch
Silver threads for our heads need another stitch
Golden needles in our eyes then we realize
It's another busy day for the cut-out witch

Do you think she can change your life?
Do you think she can change your life?
Do you think she can change your life?

    General CommentAmen, maeraj. Maybe the "witch" refers to casting a spell on you, and making everything all better. I've sometimes thought this way, but really sometimes it's better to just be alone.

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I assume the word cut-out refers to the record industry practice of using a saw to cut a notch in the corner of a batch of record albums or CDs to show that they don't count as sales and should be sold wholesale at clearance prices or otherwise dumped to retail outlets. You'll usually find these in local record stores' 99 cent bins.

    The cut-out witch could come in suddenly and make albums affordable to the compulsive record buyer.

    The cut-out witch could also markdown and write-off a band's remaining inventory, proving that band has under-performed on their record contract, and it would be a signifier that the record contract is ending. While it means the record company is taking a loss and the band is getting dropped, for some bands stuck in the major label contract this might be good news.

    From the point of view of
