Keeps Spiders In Her Pocket

Listen | Buy

NOTES: Let me first say that I'm not really a Sugarcubes fan, and I think Bjork is kind of freaky. However, I've always liked this song, even if I have no idea whatsoever what it's about. This is one of those songs where I try to ignore the lyrics and just enjoy the music (especially the opening guitar line).

She lives in this house over there
Has her world outside it
Scrapples in the earth with her fingers and her mouth
She's five years old

Threads worms on a string
Keeps spiders in her pocket
Collects fly-wings in a jar
Scrubs horse-flies and pinches them on a line

She has one friend, he lives next door
They're listening to the weather
He knows how many freckles she's got
She scratches his beard

She's painting huge spoons
And glues them together
They saw a big raven
It glided down the sky, she touched it

Today is her birthday
They're smoking cigars
He's got a chain of flowers
And sews a bird in her knickers

They're smoking cigars
They lie in the bathtub
A chain of flowers
