Ένα αλληγορικό τραγούδι που διηγείται με τσέλο την ιστορία ενός οστρακοειδούς και ενός πουλιού σαν αποφάσισαν να φιλοξενήσουν στο σπίτι τους στο δάσος ένα παγόνι…
The ostrich and the egret / Had a very fine flat to let. / Figurine hutch, no the place wasn’t much, but they / Got a peacock.
His belongings were meager but, / He was pretty, would bring good luck. / They would sing songs all aroung the piano and / Do the cakewalk.
He would say what he’s gonna do. / He would say what he wanted to. / Ostrich and egret were filled with regret, but the / Rent’s well worth him.
He felt things that they’d never felt. / Like the slap of a feather belt. / So till they sat by the fireplace silent. / A chill ran through them.
Ostrich and egret and peacock had very small dreams. / Picturing them just reminded them of calendar scenes. / Nobody’s laughing when everyone’s weeping, it seems.
So that’s how we quit the forest. / The scene wasn’t what it used to be. / The scene is never what it used to be. / So, that’s how we quit the forest.
