like a weasel in the clover
tilt, toss, pop, turn over
sit down
tremble, weave like a moth by flame deceived
sit down

like a weasel in the clover
tilt, toss, pop, turn over
sit down
tremble, weave like a moth by flame deceived
sit down

spill with your words caught
dance in your room
slide like you're buttered up
roll back the tomb
sit down
sit down
sit down

when the thunder clouds sound
ants all scatter to high ground
sit down

bolt scuff jilt chase
circle riddle shake in haste
sit down
bolt scuff jilt chase
circle riddle shake in haste
sit down
sit down

when the thunder clouds sound
ants all scatter to high ground
sit down

like a weasel in the clover
tilt, toss, pop, turn over
sit down
tremble, weave like a moth by flame deceived
sit down

spill with your words caught
dance in your room
slide like you're buttered up
roll back the tomb
sit down
sit down
sit down

when the thunder clouds sound
ants all scatter to high ground

bolt scuff jilt chase
circle riddle shake in haste
sit down
sit down
sit down

like a weasel and
like a weasel and
sit down

    General CommentDaktari was a show in the 60's about an American doctor in Africa. The sound is vaguely world-musicy, and the lyrics kind of remind me of Riki Tiki Tavi.

    General CommentThis song, as far as I can tell, is pure syllabic nonsense. I don't know. But it's some of the best nonsense I've ever heard. This is easily one of the best songs on 'The Wishing Chair' (I don't own 'Hope Chest') next to "My Mother the War" and features some of the best musical craftmanship I've heard. Plus, it's fun to dance to.

    General CommentI think I heard that this was written after Natalie Merchant watched football players training.
