The Tea Leaf Prophecy

Канадская фолк-рок-исполнительница



Words by joni mitchell
Music by larry klein and joni mitchell

Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more
Lay 'em down, lay 'em down now
Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more

Newsreels rattle the nazi dread--
The able-bodied have shipped away--
Molly mcgee gets her tea-leaves read--
You'll be married in a month they say
These leaves are crazy!
Look at this town--there's no men left!
Just frail old boys and babies
Talking to teacher in the treble clef.

She plants her garden in the spring
She does the winter shovelling
Tokyo rose on the radio
She says she's leavin' but she don't go

Out of the blue--just passin' thru
A young flight sergeant
On two weeks leave--
Says molly mcgee--no one else will do!
And seals the tea-leaf prophecy.
Oh these nights are strong and soft--
Private passions and secret storms
Nothin' about him ticks her off
And he looks so cute in his uniform

She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shovelling
But summer's just a sneeze
In a long-long-bad-winter cold
She says, I'm leavin' here but she don't go

Sleep little darlin'!
This is your happy home
Hiroshima cannot be pardoned!
Don't have kids when you get grown.
Because, this world is shattered
The wise are mourning--
The fools are joking
Oh--what does it matter?
The wash needs ironing
And the fire needs stoking.

She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shovelling
The three of 'em laughing 'round the radio
She says I'm leavin' here but she don't go

She plants her garden in the spring
They do the winter shovelling
They sit up late and watch the
Johnny carson show
She says I'm leavin' here but she don't go
