lyrics

The usher should have told me to avoid the saddest part
The villagers surrounded him as he’s clutching at his heart
He accidentally killed the girl; begs forgiveness from the mob
It’s sad for him, it’s sad for me
It’s sad for everyone involved
Not from a womb delivered, a revived rotting heart
From a grave assembled, from mismatching parts
Clearly a mistake’s been made
Now he’s walking through the yard
The girl has got him by the hand
I try to warn her from the dark
Come play, come play with me by the lake
Come play, come play, oh, it’s not too late
Take a flower, take a flower and see how it floats
Take a flower, take a flower and see how it floats
See look, see look, there’s your little boat
See look, see look, there’s my little boat
Oh no! Oh no! They’re all out of boats
Oh no,! Oh no ! Oh no!
I did all I could to warn them
I waved at the screen
The father carries her through town
Oh, it is a bad dream
He accidentally killed the girl
Begs forgiveness from the mob
And I’ll keep coming back again
To see if it cannot be stopped
Don’t play, don’t play with him by the lake
Don’t play, don’t play, oh, it is too late
Don’t take a flower, take a flower and see how it floats
Don’t take a flower, take a flower and see how it floats
Don’t look, don’t look at his little boat
Don’t look, don’t look at your little boat
Oh no! Oh no! They’re all out of boats
Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!
