Emily can you hear the dodo call remember me
See the doormat has a new disease
Pizza eats a million trees
Emily the sky is finished with us and the sea
Is bruised and swollen with the memory
Of every god-forsaken anchovy

Emily I know you love blindly
Emily I know you think kindly
The gentle breeze of summer in your hair
And so to the news the world is dying
The pundits decree we all start crying
But Emily’s in love and does not care

Emily’s so in love the world’s not there

Emily, God alone in broken heaven calls to me
What in hell on earth is come to be
He weeps we leap to reap his prophecy
Emily, Emily, Emily
You know I love you too and that it’s killing me
Please give me strength to know a way to feel
I either watch the news or make the meal


I heard on the news the world’s undone
And we’re all on our way to kingdom come
But Emily just made a cup of tea
Emily can we live minutiae
I won’t believe the sky is holed
If you can disbelieve the poisoned sea
Emily I’ll love you if you love me
