My Boy Builds Coffins

作詞:Florence Welch, Christopher Lloyd Hayden, Rob Ackroyd    作曲:Florence Welch, Christopher Lloyd Hayden, Rob Ackroyd
My boy builds coffins with hammers and nails
He doesn't build ships, he has no use for sails
He doesn't make tables, dresses or chairs
He can't carve a whistle
cause he just doesn't care
My boy builds coffins for the rich and the poor
Kings and queens them all knocked on his door
Beggars and liars, gypsies and thieves
They all come to impact he's so eager to please
My boy builds coffins he makes them all day
But it's not just for work and it isn't for play
He's made one for himself
One for me too
One of these days he'll make one for you
For you...

My boy builds coffins for better or worse
Some say it's a blessing, some say it's a curse
He fits them together in sunshine or rain
Each one is unique, no two are the same
My boy builds coffins and I think it's a shame
That when eachones been made,
he can't see it again
He crafts every one with love and repair
Then it's thrown in the ground
and it just doesn't fit
My boy builds coffins he makes them all day
But it's not just for work
and it isn't for play
He's made one for himself
One for me too
One of these days he'll make one for you
For you...
