Favorite Song of the week II

The Decemberists - The Rake Song

Didn't know it had come out already, was informed yesterday they had it available for free download on their website. Really like it though wouldn't like to be Meloy's kid reading these lyrics:

I had entered into a marriage
In the summer of my twenty-first year
And the bells rang for our wedding
Only now do I remember it clear
Alright, alright, alright

No more a rake and no more a bachelor
I was wedded and it whetted my thirst
Until her womb start spilling out babies
Only then did I reckon my curse
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

First came Eziah with his crinkled little fingers
Then came Charlotte and that wretched girl Dawn
Ugly Myfanwy died on delivery
Mercifully taking her mother along
Alright, alright, alright

What can one do when one is widower
Shamefully saddled with three little pests
All that I wanted was the freedom of a new life
So my burden I began to divest

Charlotte I buried after feeding her foxglove
Dawn was easy, she was drowned in the bath
Eziah fought but was easily bested
Burned his body for incurring my wrath
Alright, alright, alright

And that's how I came your humble narrator
To be living so easy and free
Expect you think that I should be haunted
But it never really bothers me


:laugh:

Oh yeah.

Great song.

Have you seen them live? Recommend it.
Voted for it in Hottest 100! :happy:

And yer, what that Luffy guy said... Awesome band live. Half of them are quite attractive, too. lol.
Only heard it a few times on JJJ and didn't know the name of the badn nor the song...logged onto JJJ and looked up the playlist and proceeded to youtube search any song i didn't know...luckily found it on the 4th attempt...love the trumpet, so uplifting etc etc.

Got a feeling they were at splendour the year just gone but had no idea who they were so didnt see them....will know for future.
