I'd Rather Count Cormorants With You

from Poppy Seeds by The Corner Laughers

supported by


Music by Khoi Huynh and Karla Kane. Lyrics by Khoi Huynh and KC Bowman.


You can count all of the pixels on your hi-def stream
You can count all your friends doing that same old meme
You can count all of the money wasted on Red Bull
And you can count on me to be nothing but dreadful

Count all the times that you said we're through
But I'd rather count cormorants...with you

Count them in or count them out
Count their skins & count their scouts
Count their sins & count their snouts
Count their fins & count their trouts

I could count the beans with my accountant creep
I've counted the sheep until I was fast asleep
I could count on Buster Posey to go two-for-three
I could count on dracula to steal you from me

Count all your blessings, either way it's true:
I'd rather count cormorants...with you

Count their spins & count their spouts
Count their shins & count their shouts
Count their wins & count their doubts
Count the cormorants about
