When I look out my window,
Many sights to see.
And when I look in my window,
So many different people to be
That it's strange, so strange.
You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
Mm, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.
When I look over my shoulder,
What do you think I see ?
Some other cat looking over
His shoulder at me
And he's strange, sure he's strange.
You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
Beatniks are out to make it rich,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.
You've got to pick up every stitch,
The rabbits running in the ditch,
Beatniks are out to make it rich,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch.
When I look.
When I look out my window,
What do you think I see ?
And when I look in my window,
So many different people to be
It's strange, sure it's strange.
You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
The rabbits running in the ditch,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.
When I look, when I look.

    People and there experiences. You have those that are out for the money "beatniks out to make it rich" you have the people who frolic and just want to play "rabbits running in the ditch" but more personally I find this song is oddly fitting for any type of situation whether you're getting down and dirty with your old lady, or just going solo with the flow of life: godbless :)

    Looking out the window is his perspective on the world around him, the people around him. Looking in my window refers to his introspection. Picking up every stitch is his advice that observing and learning as much as you can in this world is an imperative toward becoming who the person that you are meant to be (presumably this will drive you). Perhaps self-consciously, looking over his shoulder he sees others who are watching; odd since, at the same time, he's observing them. Beatniks out to make ir rich is a paradox that he observed, rabbits running in the ditch is the madness of the rat race. He asserts the possibility that it is due to evil (the witch) in this world. And, he'd be right on that note.

    He may be speaking of decisions to make of how he wants to live his life: "when i look into my window, so many different people to be" life choices of what one wants in life, tinker sailor etc. The season of the witch is a magical and troubled time, looking for ones self and ones way in this world. And how strange and wonderful and terrible it all is when you are new to it. And the heightened senses of that season.
