Wabbit Season. (2 of ?)

A favorite of mine from Irish folk singer Fionn Regan. A friend of mine recommended his music a couple years ago and I’ve been listening ever since. Regan recently released a new album this past February titled The Shadow of an Empire. But this song “Hey Rabbit” is off his 2006 debut album The End of History.

I thought it’d be a appropriate for the upcoming Easter holiday.

Hey Rabbit you’ve had it
Your fingers are in the coin disposal
Hey worm you’re tunnelling out
You would not listen to their proposal
The springs in the mattress will never reveal
How I entered
In a hospital ward across a billboard

The girl who collects shells has gone back to the shore
Hearing voices in car parks, pull a diamond from your sleeve

Hey badger you’re punches
out your mouth is around an aerosol can
Well they want you to sink, but you stood up an swam
Ideas are like sparrows
they dart down the hall, the chimney and out of the spout
down a worm hole and back up my mouth

The girl who collects shells has gone back to the shore
Hearing voices in car parks
Pull a diamond from your sleeve

No one these days says thank you
When you open doors for them anymore
Well I made you rich and you made me poor
