about

The Crow Girl is a recurring character in books by Canadian author and musician Charles DeLint. She acts silly most of the time but shows up when you need her. Super secret liner note: there are actually two Crow Girls in the DeLint books but the song emerged with only one.

lyrics

Crow Girl

I can’t sit still
I’m eating sugar with a spoon
Heart to heart in kitchen
You’re telling me your hopes and dreams
Then suddenly, ooh pretty!

Chorus
I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

Magic made me
I tell people I’m from the moon
You’re asking for my help
Try to concentrate on your words
But suddenly, ooh pretty!

I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

Bridge
I’ll fly in when you least expect it
But I’m not one to depend upon
Expectations give me hives
When you need me I’ll be gone
Cause I’m a crow girl

I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

I’m endearing
Crinkle some wrappers, I’ll be there
Flitter like a butterfly
I can be fierce for a moment
Then suddenly, ooh pretty!

I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

I’m exasperating
You can’t help but love me
I’m exasperating
You can’t help but love me
I’m exasperating
You can’t help but love me
But you can’t count on me
Count on me
Don’t count on me
