Tea Leaf Prophecy Lyrics by Herbie Hancock

Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more
Lay 'em down, lay 'em down now
Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more

Newsreels rattle the Nazi dread-
The able-bodied have shipped away-
Molly McGee gets her tea-leaves read-
You'll be married in a month they say
"These leaves are crazy!
Look at this town-there's no men left!
Just frail old boys and babies
Talking to teacher in the treble clef."

She plants her garden in the spring
She does the winter shoveling
Tokyo Rose on the radio
She says she's leavin' but she don't go

Out of the blue-just passin' thru
A young flight sergeant
On two weeks leave-
Says "Molly McGee-no one else will do!"
And seals the tea-leaf prophecy.
Oh these nights are strong and soft-
Private passions and secret storms
Nothin' about him ticks her off
And he looks so cute in his uniform

She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shoveling
But summer's just a sneeze
In a long-long-bad-winter cold
She says, "I'm leavin' here" but she don't go

"Sleep little darlin'!
This is your happy home
Hiroshima cannot be pardoned!
Don't have kids when you get grown.
Because, this world is shattered
The wise are mourning-
The fools are joking
Oh-what does it matter?
The wash needs ironing
And the fire needs stoking."

She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shoveling
The three of 'em laughing 'round the radio
She says "I'm leavin' here" but she don't go

She plants her garden in the spring
They do the winter shoveling
They sit up late and watch the
Johnny Carson show
She says "I'm leavin' here but she don't go
