Woke up this morning
Cut my hair off, again
Want to pack it up
An move house again

Pack my bag and move to the sticks
Leave behind anything that doesn’t fit
In my duffel bag

It’s the season of the magpie
I’m hunting things that, catch the light
Hunting for lost shiny bits
That promise more from far away
It’s the season of the magpie
Hovering till the time’s right to dive
Hunting things that catch the light

Woke up this morning
boots are
lead, again
sinking through the floor
legs are dead/ again

Cut my ties and run for the hills
leave someone else to pay the bills
in my absence

Itchy Feet, Scratchy Life
Don’t make a dive, For the shiny things

Woke up this morning
Threw my clothes out, again
Want to change it up
A new look, again

Flea at speed and jump on a bus
Take the cat and leave with a fess
Stamp my feet and go
