song 3

a.
What a thing thinking is
Rivers run in tiger rhythm
Christ and night
Ride within them
A forest of flowering trees
He sleeps he wakes within these

A good Christian boy
He went to church
And loved the lord
As for the lord,
I’m shy a word

b.
A good guy, a good boy,
A nice boy, and so thoughtful
A terrible, terrible thing

He sleeps and wakes up in the morning
By the river with the tigers, so thoughtful.
A terrible, terrible thing
Can’t understand why the lord would take him

What a terrible thing thinking is
Rivers run in tiger rhythm
A good Christian boy
He went to church
And loved the lord
As for the lord,
I’m shy a word

I would have to walk all the way back
To where I came from
To recall the word

c.
You cannot think your way
Through the forest to the river.
Wake up by the river with a church and a tiger.
A good guy.
He was anxious to get started with his life
I cannot think
It’s a terrible, terrible thing.

Stella our lady of rose hips
Of backwards clairvoyance –
The ability to tell the past
As if it were future.

You just
He loved the Tigers

About night and tigers
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
A forest of flowering trees
He sleeps he wakes within these
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right

d.
I can’t understand.
It’s a terrible thing I can’t understand.
Anxious to get started with life,
A terrible thing, a terrible thing.
Christ and night
Ride within them
A terrible, terrible thing

He sleeps and wakes up in the morning
By the river with the tigers, so thoughtful.
Can’t understand why the lord would take him
What a terrible thing thinking is

A good Christian boy
He went to church
And loved the lord
As for the lord,
I’m shy a word

All right. All right

e.
A good guy, a good boy,
A nice boy, and so thoughtful
Rivers run in tiger rhythm
I would have to walk all the way back
To where I came from
To recall the word
You cannot think your way
Wake up by the river with a church and a tiger.
I cannot think
It’s a terrible, terrible thing.
You just
He loved the Tigers
About night and tigers
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
A forest of flowering trees
He sleeps he wakes within these
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right

f.
Through the forest
To the river
Christ and night
Ride within them
Can’t understand
Why the lord would take him

What a terrible thing thinking is
A stand of flowering trees
He sleeps he wakes within these
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right

Wake up by the river with a church and a tiger.
I cannot think
It’s a terrible, terrible thing.

g.
Stella, rose,
Clairvoyance in reverse
The ability to foretell the past
See the last as first as
A way past the worst

He slept and rose up in the morning
By the river with the tigers
As if it were the future
You just
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right

h.
Rivers run in tiger rhythm
Christ and night
Ride within them
A forest of flowering trees
He sleeps he wakes within these
A good Christian boy
He went to church
And loved the lord
As for the lord,
I’m shy a word

prime
What a thing thinking is
Rivers run in tiger rhythm
Christ and night
Ride within them
A forest of flowering trees
He sleeps he wakes within these

A good Christian boy
He went to church
And loved the lord
As for the lord,
I’m shy a word

A good guy, a good boy,
A nice boy, and so thoughtful
A terrible, terrible thing

He sleeps and wakes up in the morning
By the river with the tigers, so thoughtful.
A terrible, terrible thing

I would have to walk all the way back
To where I came from
To recall the word

About those night and about those tigers
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The forest takes care of all her rivers
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right
The boy’s all right, the boy’s all right

Be with me
I’m with you
