Crow’s Commentary lyrics:

Knocking at your window
But only for a treat
Or perhaps a gleaming treasure
To adore and to keep
Black-blue like the midnight sea
Clever, mischievous master of the sky
Poor human in the window
Who sees not, we share the same tone
In our eyes

Matthew (CorvidCanine) wrote, “the album still has a way to go before it is finished, but I’d like to go ahead and share this song.”

You can learn more about the special project here. Or you can hear all of his music here.

Thank you for sharing Matthew!

“The Crow Song”
There were three crows sat on a tree, Oh Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
There were three crows sat on a tree, Oh Billy Ma-gee Maggar!
There were three crows sat on a tree,
And they were black as crows should be
And they all flapped their wings and cried
Caw, Caw, Caw, Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
II
Said one old crow unto his mate, Oh Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
Said one old crow unto his mate, Oh Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
Said one old crow unto his mate,
What shall we do for grub to ate?
And they all flapped their wings and cried
Caw, Caw, Caw, Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar.
III
There lies a horse on yonder plain,
Whose by some cruel butcher slain,
We’ll perch upon his old backbone,
And pick his eyes out one by one.
And they all flapped their wings and cried
Caw, Caw, Caw, Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar.

Here is one version of this song sang by Burl Ives:
The Three Crows by Burl Ives

Some tunes to crow about…

Well, being a corvid lover and all…I decided I would gather up some music about the intelligent birds. Some of the songs are about the bird, some are named after the bird, some liken love or life after the birds. All of them are worth listening to—so sit back, push play and enjoy. The music player is in the upper left corner.

If you have a song about crows, ravens, jays or any corvid you would like to share, please feel free to contact us below.
A detailed play list is coming soon—so you can get these songs too.
