According to Greek legend, the sun god Apollo once had a lover named Coronis. To ensure that Coronis remained faithful to him during a voyage, Apollo had his familiar, a white crow, watch over Coronis in his absence...

lyrics

Dear crow my crow - you'll keep an eye upon my bride
Dear crow my crow - not a secret will she hide
Dear crow my crow - you'll keep her safe 'till I get back
Dear crow my crow - or I'll turn your white to black

Shiny black light mesmerising
Salty sister so surprising
Glitter gleaming heaven's screaming
Raving faking Saturn's beaming

Riff-raff quaking up the shaft and
Out the top not looking back again
She's in the mood for celebration
Light the pyre in expectation

Dear crow my crow - you'll keep an eye upon my bride
Dear crow my crow - not a secret will she hide
Dear crow my crow - you'll keep her safe 'till I get back
Dear crow my crow - or I'll turn your white to black
Dear crow

Irridescent ultra-violet
Roll me over shaky pilot
Cosmic lover under cover
Breaking down in bliss above her

Riff-raff quaking up the shaft and
Out the top not looking back again
She's in the mood for celebration
Light the pyre in expectation

Dear crow my crow - you'll keep an eye upon my bride
Dear crow my crow - not a secret will she hide
Dear crow my crow - you'll keep her safe 'till I get back
Dear crow my crow - or I'll turn your white to black
Dear crow

She's rollin' up her sleepin' bags
She's dressin' up in mornin' rags
She's never goin' back again no

Now's her time to make a stand
She'll take her courage right in hand
She's never goin' back again no

Dear crow my crow - you'll keep an eye upon my bride
Dear crow my crow - not a secret will she hide
Dear crow my crow - you'll keep her safe 'till I get back
Dear crow my crow - or I'll turn your white to black
