put a straw under baby lyrics – brian eno

put a straw under baby
your good deed for the day
put a straw under baby
keep the splinters away.

let the corridors echo
as the dark places grow
hear superior’s footsteps
on the landing below.

there’s a place in the orchard
where no one dare go
the last nun who went there
turned into a crow.

turned into a crow-crow
turned into a crow
the last nun who went there
turned into a crow.

there’s a brain in the table
there’s a heart in the chair
and they all live in jesus
it’s a family affair.
