"Shiny Things" as written by and Tom Waits Kathleen Brennan....
The things a crow puts in its nest,
They're always things it finds that shine.
And how he'll find a shiny dime,
Silver twine, from a valentine.
The crows all bring them shiny things.

Leave me alone you big ol' moon,
The light you cast is just a lighter.
You're like the crow, 'cause if it goes,
You're dressed to go, you guessed, I know,
You'll always bring them shiny things.

Well I'm not dancing here tonight,
But things are bound to turn around.
The only thing I want that shines,
Is to be king there in your eyes.
To be your only shiny thing.

    General CommentAll that glitters ain't gold! Anything will shine under the moon, but he doesn't want material things, he just wants his woman to love him. Awh :)
