A new song.

Hi Brendan, Would you mind posting the lyrics as I couldn’t hear many of the lines well. I did hear references to birds and “bickering and sniggering”?
but would like to hear the song words in full as I know you are a craftsman at it, I think you gave this song a gentle treatment and I suspect I would like it sung stronger – like you are telling the world – “I’m lucky in love”!
Best wishes to you and your family. Will catch up soon.
Thanks, David! It’s always great to get your feedback, and it’s a good point about singing out more. These are the lyrics.
Here comes a magpie, looking for the win
But I’m only superstitious when he brings his twin
Things could be better, things could be worse
I’ve had your blessing and I don’t believe in a curse
I’m tired of all the noisy talk
It’s like a jackdaw fighting with a sparrowhawk
There’s no engagement, there’s nothing new
But all I need is what I get from you
I don’t care about the bickering, the sniggering, the swinging of a hangman’s knot
I don’t want to know the history of who said what
I just want to see the rabbits in the fields and birds singing in the sky above
I don’t care about money ’cos I’m lucky in love
You are a calmness in the hurricane
You are excitement that I can’t explain
But angry people with their pointless words
Are like the dogs in the garden, barking at the birds
I remember all the songs we’ve sung
A spider’s web on which some notes are hung
To praise the living and mourn the dead
But winter’s coming and the butter breaks the bread
