Sinkin' Soon



Sinkin' Soon - by Norah Jones

We're the oyster cracker on the stew, the honey in the tea
We're the sugar cubes, one lump or two, in the black coffee
The golden crust on the apple pie, shining in the sun at noon
We're the wheel of cheese high in the sky
But we're gonna be sinkin' soon

In a boat that's built of sticks and hay, we drifted from the shore
With a captain who's too proud to say that he dropped the oar
A tiny hole has sprung a leak in this cheap pontoon
Now the hull has started growing weak
And we're gonna be sinkin' soon

We're gonna be sinkin' soon, we're gonna be sinkin' soon
Everybody hold your breath and down and down we go

We're the oyster cracker on the stew, the honey in the tea
We're the sugar cubes, one lump or two, no thank you, none for me
We're the golden crust on the apple pie, shining in the sun at noon
We're the wheel of cheese high in the sky
But we're gonna be sinkin' soon

Anu,

How are you. I found your blog thru shyamala blog thru some other blog. I am always thinking about you Anu and reading your blog made me cry. You are brave girl anu. I really wished I lived in seattle to help you with atleast cooking.

I have been trying to reach you but in vain. I had sent an email to your old email id (in april) you gave me seven years back not sure if you are still using it.

Anu I have a happy news to share with you. We are blessed with baby boy this april . He is almost 8 months now. Send me your email/phone number asap. I would love to talk to you .

I am reading blog with very feeble sound(trying not to wake up my son). You are singing so well Anu.I will have to listen to your song with full volume tomorrow : ). Me and N will listen together.

Hugs from me

Hey! You're supposed to yell "timber" or whatever it is that they yell, and tell people that there's some awesome stuff put up here. Loved them all -- but loved the Frost one the mostest... (Now can I be greedy-guts and ask for more?)
