Such the lazy Jackstraw always late for tea
Never bothers to ring lately
Says the silly sparrow a gossip in the grain
Have you heard the, oh you don't say

Someday, someday snow shall fill the trees
You best make warm eves

Callous is the old crow, he mock even the sun
Eyes as black as blood, bone crack in the craw
He'd say, he'd say always never mind
Always never mind

Truth be beggar that holds his tongue
Dines on none, none but air alone

    It means that this guy is depressed. It means that he should get a life and/or commit suicide because nobody likes him and i cant find the real meaning of this song so im pissed off.
