Eleanor's Cake Which Ate Her lyrics

My oh my oh my
Do you really have to cry?
Crying like a summer rain
Lady let me ease your pain.
Why oh why oh why
Dont you spread your winds and fly?
Flying like an autumn wind
Lady did you lose a friend?

Dont be sad and down
Take another look around
Maybe what youve lost youve found.

Dont be sad and down
Take another look around
Maybe what youve lost youve found
