lyrics

Sometimes the bird, it just doesn’t crow
Sometimes it sings, it sings, it sings

Sometimes the bell, it just doesn’t toll
Sometimes it rings, it rings, it rings

The bird, it flew as it was frightened by the ringing of the bell.
The startled starling joins the sky.
The strike of every single hour, rings around the tower
Bringing starts and ends to all of those nearby.

You know you’ve got the best of me
But please don’t take the rest of me
And oh, my word you are so beautiful

Sometimes the phone it just doesn’t ring,
Sometimes you call, you call, you call.

Sometimes your star, it just doesn’t rise
Sometimes it falls, it falls, it falls

The man, he ran as he was frightened by the ringing of the bell.
The startled starling joins this guy.
The strike of every single hour, rings around the tower
Bringing starts and ends to all of those nearby.

You know you’ve got the best of me
But please don’t take the rest of me
And oh, my word you are so beautiful
