lyrics

Baby Ducks

All the little baby ducks around the millpond are nestled in their mother’s down
All the little children dancing round the maypole, ribbons twisting all around
Oh but this too shall pass and fade away
Oh but please let me come back again another day and stay

Why’d you have to go and pick all them roses like they bloomed for you?
Why’d you have to go and wake up the children before their naps were through?
Oh but this too shall pass and fade away
Oh but please let me come back again another day and stay

Oh I never should have asked
No I never should have asked
No I never should have asked for what you gave

Why’d you have to go and rustle all the hay before they could get it bailed?
Why’d you have to go and give me an A, when you knew I had failed?
Oh but this too shall pass and fade away,
Oh but please let me come back again another day and stay

Oh I never should have asked
No I never should have asked
No I never should have asked for what you gave

Oh I never would have asked
No I never would have asked
No I never would have asked for what you gave

Oh I never could have asked
No I never could have asked
No I never could have asked for what you gave

(rinse and repeat)

All the little baby ducks around the millpond are nestled

about

The Kindling Tennessee

We sing songs of beauty, humor, and butterflies; trauma, heartbreak, and grief. We learn what has come before us from the stories of the elderly and the hum of the woods. We write what we study. The voices on this album are as much our own as our ancestors. We cannot sing without those who have made us who we are. You could call it folk music, we call it psychedelic rock n roll. ... more
