Humpty Dumpty Girl

by What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?




You’re a Humpty Dumpty girl
Sitting high upon your wall
You’re a Humpty Dumpty girl
You want the world to watch you fall
You like the boys to reassemble you
Glue you into something new
That don’t resemble you at all

I don’t remember when
The last time I saw the king’s men
The fools I’ve seen of late
How they love to watch you break

And when you’re scattered on the ground
Like crows they gather round
And what a mess they make
As they choose which pieces to take

When you’re back on your shelf
Do you recognize yourself?
After you cover the scars and the seams
There ain’t much left in between

And you tell me, all is well
There ain’t no man can crack your shell
Don’t want to be unkind
But the next time you fall
There won’t be nothing at all left to find

And if you want someone to rescue you
Or to protect what’s left of you
This time you better keep off that wall
