Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht with some lyrics by Mark Nichols


Why did you have a nose so small
Why did you have to speak to me at all?
My legs are tired and my back is sore
From where you kicked me to go faster

So let us tear your silk shirt
Wrap you in rags no one will ever know
We'll baptize you in a nearby stream
With the mountain's glacier ice water

Nobody wants you, so I'll guess I'll have to take you
Because nobody will take you,
Then I guess you'll have to take me too


from Caucasian Chalk Circle, released November 13, 2012
Performed by Julie Lewis
