Jenny keep the closet warm
I'll need somewhere to hide
Bees are swarming around my head
Digging in my side
They laugh and taunt and prod me
Tear at the walls around me
Here in my eternal shell
I laugh like bloody murderous hell

Jenny keep the coal fire on
I need somewhere to dry
Had to swim the river cross
With a poker in my eye
Flashing still contingency
Waved for me to go
I hit the shore then in a rage
Swing at a shadow in a monkey's cage

Jenny keep the window down
Until you hear me moan
Light the candle quickly
Then welcome me back home
I'll make sure not to say to you
Those dark and thundering clouds are through
That I have met escape this time
All is well and we'll be fine

Jenny keep the covers up
Bathe in winter sleep
I be among the curs of war
Rife with battles deep
The fight will be a furious one
The outcome surely curious
Don Quixote's Windmill cease to desecrate
My will for peace
