On and on and on and on

How very Leonard Cohen of Norah Jones! This is what I am playing on loop and I have started early in the morning. It's very becoming of the current weather, deceitful and finally cold again. Looking for the lyrics, which I found on the www.azlyrics.com, I have initially visited youtube. So, I like the video too, although it doesn't make it into my top ten, but Norah sure looks smashing.

Feast yourselves on meaning!

Norah Jones, Sinkin' Soon

We're an oyster cracker on the stew,
And the honey in the tea,
We're the sugar cubes, one lump or two,
In the black coffee,
The golden crust on an apple pie,
That shines in the sun at noon,
We're a 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 'cause,
We're gonna be sinkin' soon.

We're gonna be
Sinkin' soon,
We're gonna be
Sinkin' soon,
Everybody hold your breath!
Down and down we go.

Like the oyster cracker on the stew,
The honey in the tea
The sugar cubes, one lump or two?
No thank you, none for me.
We're the golden crust on the apple pie,
That shines in the sun at noon,
Like the wheel of cheese high in the sky
Well, we're gonna be sinkin' soon.
