Rook, Rook Read from your book 
Who murders who and where is the treasure hid? 
Crow, Crow Spill all you know 
Is that my name on the bell? 
Rook, Rook Gaze in the brook 
If there's a secret can I be part of it? 
Crow, Crow Before I'll let go, say is that my name on the bell? 
Soar up high, see the semaphore from the washing lines 
Break the code of the whispering chimneys and traffic signs 
Where's the message that's written under the base of clouds? 
Plans eternal, I know you know, so don't blurt out loud 
Rook, Rook By hook or by crook 
I'll make you tell me what this whole thing's about! 
Crow, Crow Why can't you show 
If that's my name on the bell? 
On the wings of night, I fly too, above field and stream 
My head bursting with knowledge 'till I wake from the dream 
If I die and I find that I had a soul inside 
Promise me that you'll take it up on its final ride 
Rook, Rook Gaze in the brook 
If there's a secret can I be part of it? 
Crow, Crow Before I'll let go, say is that my name on the bell? 
Is that my name on the bell?
