lyrics

They sat there in their coats of fur on a Saturday
The rain came down, slid on the glass and dripped tearfully away.
They got out the atlas to see all the people they could be.

Well, turtles they bask in the sun every day.
When the weather's cold, they jump in the water, they sink away.
They float to the bottom of the pond,
Close their eyes humming a swan song.

Lying on their backs
Watching circling bats.
All these riddled maps -
It seems to be impossible.

Ah, ah, ha ha, ah -

And all the ferry rides are on Saturdays.
They follow directions but the seagulls laugh
They fly merrily away.
They are charting the course of a changing time.
Now the pennie's a nickel and the dollar's a dime.

Lying on their backs
Watching circling bats.
All these riddled maps -
It seems to be impossible.

All these riddled maps will soon turn away.
All these riddled maps will soon burn away.
