Lyrics to Scarecrow by Counting Crows

Mary steers clear of the men from space
Back alley kid with an American face
She wants the wine, he brings a case
To carry them on through

(I said) you know what I know about the bedroom boys
And the undercover Russians in a pink Rolls Royce
They bang the drum, she sets the beat
They carry Miss America out into the street
She sings snowman, scarecrow, John Doe, buffalo!

I wish you wouldn't go
I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do

Ohh, I guess you oughta know
I got the hands to teach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Snowman, sideshow
Do, do, do, do, do

I fell out of love
In the snowbound days
Riding the subway in a Valium haze
I need the whites, she gets the blues
It carries us on through

All these American boys at the park 'n' shop
Selling their memories for a dollar a pop
Ivan the ancient spaceman race fan
Corners the market on American tastes
And says spaceman, scarecrow, peepshow, freakshow!

I wish you wouldn't go
I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do

Ohh, I guess you oughta know
I got the hands to teach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Punk rock video
Do, do, do, do, do
Hey, hey

All the sudden light inside you dies
Maybe you're going on alone
Maybe you're going all alone

She dreams of sunlight
Sings of smaller things
White sugar bowls and wedding rings

You're going on from me alone
You're going on, you're on your own

She was married alive in a Moscow surgery
Hoping to die in a Cold War nursery
All of the kids back home believe in much more than we do
It's a memory play where the memory fades
Into pictures you took, into records we played

Spy versus spy
Scarecrow and I
Out across the darkness where the bomberjets fly, singing
Spaceman, smokeshow, scarecrow, geronimo!

I wish you wouldn't go
I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do

Ohh, I guess you oughta know
I got the hands to teach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Snowman, freakshow
Do, do, do, do, do
Come on, come on, come on!

Ohh, I wish you wouldn't go
I got the arms to reach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Oh, scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do

Ohh, I guess you oughta know
I got the hands to teach you
I am the scarecrow
Do, do, do, do, do
Listen on the midnight radio
Do, do, do, do, do
