lyrics

janie never ever said boo to us 
she only ever talked to dogs and books 
she wore her pants too short some days too long 
no matter what she wore janie just looked wrong 
wrong janie wrong janie is a doctor now in hong kong 
she has tea once a week with the grand duchee 
and janie never ever even thinks about me 
why did she leave?
annie was so shy it was ridiculous 
she had these chicken white thighs and a messed up face
she’d fall in love with any boy that smiled in her direction
you could get her drunk and feel her up with no need for discretion
ugly annie ugly annie is a model now in sydney
she has tea once a week with the grand duchee
and annie never ever even thinks about me
why did she leave?
see how the mist it clings to the hills the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen see how the wet leaves cling to the gum trees that’s how a woman should cling to me
louise was the show princess for three years running
wet dream of every teen from here to gundy
we all whistled when she walked by till she married charlie hunter
then she disappeared one wet july and he never did hear from her
sexy louise sexy she’s living in the bush now with a commune full of greenies
she has tea once a week with the grand duchee
and louise never ever even thinks about me
why did she leave?
why do all the country girls leave?
see how the mist it clings to the hills the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen.
summer 98 Australia

about

Myshkin Warbler Astoria, Oregon

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
