lyrics

Henrietta Leavitt never got the credit for measuring the stars
Luminous and varied, numerous and buried treasure reservoir

The farther the candle the fainter the flame
The farther the scandal the fainter the name

I’m working like a milk maid, burning like a campfire
Trying to get the bills paid for my little vampire

I saw the sun rise on Thanksgiving morning
I saw the night turn to day without warning
And I’ve never been so afraid of the whole new world that we made

You’re working on the spiral trying to keep the rooms clean
Vanquishing the viral, wondering what the runes mean

We thought we knew but now we know
We thought we flew but now we flow

I’m working like a night nurse, trying to get the most out
Making all the fights worse for a little ghost mouth

And if you crown me the queen of the meadow
I’ll wear a gown made of leaves from the hedgerow
And I’ve never been so surprised by the whole new world we devised

Never a rainbow, barely a mouse
Never complain, don’t turn back and grouse

You’re working like a pool boy, passing out the beach towels
Trying to get the cool toys for your little screech owl

And when you crown me the queen of the meadow
I’ll wear a gown made of leaves from the hedgerow
And I’ve never been so elated by the whole new world we created

Henrietta Leavitt never got the credit for measuring the stars
