Pelicans We

This song is by Cosmo Sheldrake and appears on the EP Pelicans We (2015).

King and Queens of the Pelicans we;
No other Birds so grand we see!
None but we have feet like fins!
With lovely leathery throats and chins!

Ploffskin, Pluffskin, Pelican jee!
We think no birds so happy as we!
Plumpskin, Ploshkin, Pelican jill!
We think so then, and we thought so still!

We live on the Nile. The Nile we love.
By night we sleep on the cliffs above;
By day we fish, and at eve we stand
On long bare islands of yellow sand.

And when the sun sinks slowly down
And the great rock walls grow dark and brown,
Where the purple river rolls fast and dim
And the Ivory Ibis starlike skim,

Wing to wing we dance around,
Stamping our feet with a flumpy sound,
Opening our mouths as Pelicans ought
And this is the song that we nightly snort:

King and Queens of the Pelicans we;
No other Birds so grand we see!
None but we have feet like fins!
With lovely leathery throats and chins!

Ploffskin, Pluffskin, Pelican jee!
We think no Birds so happy as we!
Pluffskin, pluffskin, pelican jill!
We think so then, and we thought so still!
