Witty little wee little scarecrow girl
Stitches and stuffing neat as toddler’s curls
Witty little wee little scarecrow girl
Shedding straw riding ‘round the twirly whirl
 
Someone stitch her up, can’t you see the straw
dangling
Littering streets, can’t you see her
mangling
Clutching it close and clinging tight
Ripped to ruins in the middle of the night.
 
Ratty little ragged little scarecrow girl
Can’t hold together on the twirly whirl
Ratty little ragged little scarecrow girl
Someone sew her up before night unfurls
 
Oh dear, dally here, don’t you see her dread
chanting
Twisting wickedly in her wild
incanting
Leaping left and springing right
Raising red ruin in the middle of night.
 
Sing a little ditty dear scarecrow girl
Glassy eyes gleaming with the gloss of pearl
Sing a little ditty dear scarecrow girl
Skirts rising up in a scandalous swirl
 
Welcome in to watch the main attraction
A woman well worth your satisfaction
Balancing bravely as she walks the wire
The scarecrow-made-seamstress frolics in fire!
 
Balancing bravely and walking the wire
The scarecrow-made-seamstress frolics in fire.
