about

This is a song about my lucky number. Actually it's a song about magpies, and about what happens when you see thirteen of them. And it's about my lucky number.

lyrics

Thirteen
by Michelle Dockrey & Tony Fabris

Well I went for a walk on the rocky cliffs with a sunshine sea and a sky of grey
Saw the big black bird with the white-out wings, he called "come with me, child, and fly away"
Said "count my brothers and count my sisters, we'll tell your fortune and we'll tell you true"
"But the path's all covered in claws and feathers, Magpie, there's too many of you"

One one one and two and three
Magpie, won't you take pity on me
The devil himself only counted to seven
Tell me what does it mean
Thirteen, thirteen, thirteen, thirteen

Magpie tell me where I'm going, magpie tell me where I've been
Eight's for a dance on the stroke of midnight, nine's for a sinner and ten for sin
Eleven is for the gates of heaven, twelve's for the man who lets you in
But thirteen's a charm and thirteen's a murder and thirteen's the feathers underneath your skin

One one one and two and three
Magpie, won't you take pity on me
The devil himself only counted to seven
Tell me what does it mean
Thirteen, thirteen, thirteen, thirteen

Magpie tell me all your stories, magpie tell me I can play
I never believed in the signs and omens, I never knew nothing until today
Fly me twelve times round the castle, take me up and never set me down
Take my joy in gold and silver, jump off the cliff and never hit the ground

One one one and two and three
Magpie, won't you take pity on me
The devil himself only counted to seven
Tell me what does it mean
Thirteen, thirteen, thirteen, thirteen
