sparrowhawk lyrics – hugh blumenfeld

the hawk and the sparrow flew up together
though the sparrow was small and the hawk on a tether
wingtip wingtip, feather to feather
all in the fall with winter coming on
all in the fall with winter coming on
he was dark as a blanket of snow
she was bright as the lightning’s shadow
he shook yes, she nodded no
all in the fall with winter coming on
all in the fall with winter coming on
the leaves fell down and the wind blew stiff
they had their tumble and they had their tiff
and they both sang a love song that started with “if…”
all in the fall with winter coming on
all in the fall with winter coming on
it was br**sts and hands and flanks and thighs
everyone around had to shield their eyes
and we called in the cops at the sound of their cries
all in the fall with winter coming on
all in the fall with winter coming on
and the sun and the moon hung there in the sky
till no one could tell day from night
and the harvest piled up higher than high
all in the fall with winter coming on
all in the fall with winter coming on
