Letra de Monkey & Bear

CAPO 5



(Am G F

down in the green hay

A G D)

where monkey and bear usually lay

Am F Am

they woke from a stable-boy's cry



Am G F

he said; someone come quick!

A G D

the horses got loose, got grass-sick!

Am F Am

they'll founder! fain, they'll die



Cm C Cadd9 E Esus4 E

what is now known by the sorrel and the roan?

Esus4 E Esus4 Eadd9 E

E

by the chestnut, and the bay, and the gelding grey?



Am G D

it is: stay by the gate you are given

C G F

and remain in your place, for your season

Am G C

and had the overfed dead but listened

F G A

to that high-fence, horse-sense, wisdom...



Am G F D

"did you hear that, Bear?" said monkey

G D D/A

we'll get out of here, fair and square

Am F Am

they've left the gate open wide!



Am

so;

D

my bride

Am D

here is my hand, where is your paw?

Am D

try and understand my plan, Ursala

Am D

my heart is a furnace

Am D

full of love that's just, and earnest

Am D

now; you know that we must unlearn this

Am D

allegiance to a life of service

Am D

and no longer answer to that heartless

Am D

hay-monger, nor be his accomplice

Am D

(that charlatan, with artless hustling!)

Am D

but; Ursala, we've got to eat something

Am D

and earn our keep, while still within

Am D

the borders of the land that man has girded

Am D

(all double-bolted and tightfisted!)

Am D

until we reach the open country

Am D

a-steeped in milk and honey



Am D

will you keep your fancy clothes on, for me?

Am D

can you bear a little longer to wear that leash?

Am D

my love, I swear by the air I breathe:

Am C F Am

sooner or later, you'll bare your teeth



Am D

but for now, just dance, darling

Am E

c'mon, will you dance, my darling?

Am C

darling, there's a place for us

F D

can we go, before I turn to dust?

Am C F Am

oh my darling, there's a place for us

Am D

oh darling

Am E

c'mon will you dance, my darling?

Am C

oh, the hills are groaning with excess

F D

like a table ceaselessly being set

Am C F Am

oh my darling, we will get there yet



Am G F

they trooped past the guards,

A G D (F, G)

past the coops, and the fields, and the farmyards

Am F Am

all night, till finally:



Am G F

the space they gained grew

A G D (F, G)

much farther than the stone that bear threw

Am F Am

to mark where they'd stop for tea



Cm C Cadd9

but walk a little faster

E Esus4 E Esus4

and don't look backwards

E Esus4 E Eadd9 E

Eadd9

your feast is to the East, which lies a little past the

E

pasture



Am G F

when the blackbirds hear tea whistling, they rise and clap

https://www.coveralia.com/acordes/monkey-y-bear-joanna-newsom.php

C G F

and their applause caws the kettle black

Am G C

and we can't have none of that!



Am G D

move along, Bear; there, there; that�s that

Am G F

(though cast in plaster

A G D (F, G)

our Ursala's heart beat faster

Am F Am

than monkey's ever will)



Am D

but still;

Am D

they have got to pay the bills

Am D

hadn't they?

Am D

that is what the monkey'd say



Am D Am

so, with the courage of a clown, or a cur

D Am

or a kite, jerking tight at its tether

D Am

in her dun-brown gown of fur

D Am

and her jerkin of swan's down and leather



D Am

Bear would sway on her hind legs;

D Am

the organ would grind dregs of song, for the pleasure

D

of the children, who'd shriek

Am

throwing coins at her feet

D Am

then recoiling in terror



D

sing, dance, darling

Am E

c'mon, will you dance, my darling?

Am C

oh darling, there's a place for us

F D

can we go, before I turn to dust?

Am C F Am

oh my darling, there�s a place for us



Am D

oh darling

Am E

c'mon, will you dance, my darling?

Am C

you keep your eyes fixed on the highest hill

F D

where you'll ever-after eat your fill

Am C F D

oh my darling, dear, mine

Am

if you dance

C F Am

dance, darling, and i love you still



Am

deep in the night

shone a weak and miserly light

where the monkey shouldered his lamp

someone had told him

the bear had been wandering

a fair piece away from where they were camped

someone had told him

the bear'd been sneaking away

to the seaside caverns, to bathe

and the thought troubled the monkey

for he was afraid of spelunking down in those caves

also afraid what the village people would say

if they saw the bear in that state;

lolling and splashing obscenely

well, it seemed irrational, really; washing that face

washing that matted and flea-bit pelt

in some sea-spit-shine, old kelp dripping with brine

but monkey just laughed, and he muttered;

when she comes back, Ursala will be bursting with pride

'til I jump up!

saying: you've been rolling in muck!

saying: you smell of garbage and grime!

but far out

far out

by now

by now

far out, by now, Bear ploughed

'cause she would not drown:

first the outside-legs of the bear

up and fell down, in the water, like knobby garters

then the outside-arms of the bear

fell off, as easy as if sloughed from boiled tomatoes

low'red in a genteel curtsy

bear shed the mantle of her diluvian shoulders;

and, with a sigh, she allowed the burden of belly

to drop like an apronfull of boulders

if you could hold up her threadbare coat to the light

where it's worn translucent in places

you'd see spots where almost every night of the year

Bear had been mending suspending that baseness

now her coat drags through the water

bagging, with a life's-worth of hunger, limitless minnows

in the magnetic embrace

balletic and glacial of Bear's insatiable shadow

left there!

left there!

when Bear left Bear

left there!

left there!

when Bear stepped clear of Bear



Am, G, F, A, G, D (F,

Am, F, G



Am C F Am

(sooner or later, you'll bare your teeth...)
