The Orphan Tells a Tale For Catherynne Valente, to the tune of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”
Ee-e-e-um-um-a-weh
Ee-e-e-um-um-a-weh
Wemoweh, wemoweh, wemoweh, wemoweh (4X)

In the garden
The peaceful garden
The orphan tells a tale

In the garden
The quiet garden
The orphan tells her tale

[Refrain]
Ee-e-e-um-um-a-weh
Wemoweh, wemoweh, wemoweh, wemoweh (2X)
Ee-e-e-um-um-a-weh

A tale of pirates
A tale of monsters
A never-ending tale

A tale of pirates
A tale of monsters
A most amazing tale
[Refrain and fade]
