So Says The Whipporwill

Richard Shindell


The change could happen anyday
So says the whippoorwill
She hangs around for the seeds I leave
Out on the windowsill
"Be-free-you-fool, be-free-you-fool"
She sings all afternoon
Then, as if to show me how it's done,
She leaps into the blue

The change could happen anyday
So say my true love's eyes
They see into my shadows
With their sweet, forgiving light
She smiles and says, Come on - let's go
Let's stroll the boulevard
It's such a shame to waste the night
Just sitting in the dark

The change could happen anyday
Or so says Father Brown
I listen for that still small voice
But I just can't make it out
Beneath the constant whispering
Of the devil that I know
But who would I be if I believed?
Who am I if I don't?

The change could happen anyday
So said the mountaineer
Before he turned to face his cliff
Without a trace of fear
Yodel-ay-hee-hoo, yodel-ay-hee-hoo
He sang right up until
He caught sight of the open blue
And became a whippoorwill
He caught sight of the open blue
And became a whippoorwill
