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 :)

    If anyone can work "picking up every stitch" which is a sewing term, into their idea of the song, great.

    Season of the witch redone by al kooper sold over a million copies.

    Its about how strange life is to an outsider. Life is very very odd when you take a step back and actually look at it.
