lyrics

Buried coins in the gravel ground
What is lost and never found
Daddy pours the concrete down
To anchor the swing set in the ground
Buried coins in the gravel ground
What is lost is lost

Easter morning my sister and me
Bunnies melted in the trees
Stagger blind with a donkey’s tail
The birthday boys scream and flail
Easter morning my sister and me
Bunnies melted in the trees

A death scatter is easy to do
A rubber band and my aim is true
Black widows on the window pane
Legs crumpled in sad decay
A death scatter’s too easy to do
A rubber band and my aim is true

Garden hose keeps the desert at bay
Listen to what the songbirds say
Cats moved in and the songs were gone
The preening pride, the feathers blown
Garden hose keeps the desert at bay
Remember what the songbirds used to say

Buried coins in the gravel ground
What is lost but never found
Daddy finds the corpses in the morning
Dig it deep, far from the coyote’s paw
Daddy finds the corpses in the morning
Dig it farther than the coyotes, Pa.
Buried coins in the gravel ground
What is lost is always lost
