"Sweet Lil' Duck" as written by and Kathleen Margaret Edwards....
Sweet little duck I've been waiting for you
Wearing my heart on my sleeve
And I sleep through most days
So the time goes by
And I think I drink more now that ever

'Cause you've got me on your shelf and I just sit here
Thinking about when everything was right
And you say you don't got any answers
Well I'm tired of you not making up your mind

Sweet little duck I've been dreaming again
But I still wear my heart on my sleeve
I'm gonna set things right
I gotta job down south
Don't you think about coming after me

    General CommentSweet little duck, I'm waiting (for you),
    wearing my heart on my sleeve.
    And I sleep through most my days,
    so that time goes by...
    And I think I drink more now than ever.

    'Cause you've got me on your shelf,
    and I just sit here,
    thinking 'bout when everything was right.
    And you say you don't got any answers.
    But I'm tired of you not making up your mind.

    And on Tuesday I'll be back for my things...

    And sweet little duck, I'm waiting for you,
    but I still wear my heart on my sleeve.
    I'm gonna set things right...
    I've got a job down south...
    Don't you think about coming after me.

    'Cause you've got me on your shelf,
    and I just sit here,
    thinking 'bout when everything was right.
    And you say you don't got any answers.
    But I'm tired of you not making up your mind.

    And on Tuesday I'll be back for my things...
    And on Tuesday I'll be back for my things...

    General CommentThis song is soo beautiful. I often wake up with it in my head, the bit that goes "and I sleep through most my days so the time goes by, and I think I drink more now than ever"

    I think it's about being completely exhausted by something, in this case a relationship. It's like she is saying, i'm going to drink and sleep too much to make the time pass, but I'm going to do something to fix things, and don't come after me because I am too exhausted and hurt (I'm gonna set things right, I've got a job down south, don't you think about coming after me).
