Lyrics

The Crow and the Raven were sitting on the vines
Watching as the vultures circled in the darkened sky
The Crow said "Mr. Raven, it's obvious to me"
that there’s trouble for as far as I can see"
"Mr. Crow" said the Raven "I think you can double down,
I'd place my bet that they'll forget the troubled side of town
Where wickedness is spreading like a terminal disease,
And it's bringing them down to their knees.”

Now the Crow and the Raven were sitting on the wires
Watching as we danced in circles around the fire
And the Crow said to the Raven "do they actually believe,
that a dance can rid the world of this disease?”

Hey Mr. Crow come and dance with me
Because we're taking a stand and you see, it’s all we’ve got
It ain’t misbehaving when there’s something worth saving
So we'll dance and we'll twirl…
And we'll shake the evil from this world.

Well the dance went on for hours and the dance went on for days
We sipped the wine and took our time and the crow began to cave
And the raven found a rhythm in the beating of the drums
And we could see it in their eyes that they'd succumb

The Crow said to the Raven "I think we should take a spin,
The music’s hot and I forgot the trouble they were in."
“All the dancing's made me dizzy and the drinking featherbrained
And I can't believe how long we’ve stayed away.”

Hey Mr. Crow come and dance with me
Because we're taking a stand you see, it’s all we’ve got
It ain’t misbehaving when there’s something worth saving
So we’ll dance and we’ll twirl
And we'll shake the evil from this world

Hey Mr. Crow dance with me
Because we're taking a chance and you see, we’re giving it all we’ve got
Hey Mr. Raven we’ve got something worth saving
So we'll dance and we'll twirl…
And we'll shake the evil from this world.
