One daisy I was lazy and I daffadilly-dallied but I rose up and made things happen I was whining, I was pining like an unblown dandelion tapped some maple syrup sap out of my happiness Don’t you say your day is weedy when your noggin’s feeling needy gotta feed it with the seeds of springtime saplings Don’t you mind your time is fleeting when you find your mind is greedy gotta curb it with the warmth of sunlight dappling One, tulip, three-lip, four I was cedar on the floor but I stood up and made things happen I was hoping that a crocus would open up my throat so I could sing a tune like wings on birdies flapping Don’t you let your mind get foggy like a froggy stopping hopping like a grey day growing groggy in the morning Don’t you let the loggers log you or the bogs of boredom bog you spruce your juice and chase your dreams like tails on doggies One, tulip, three-lip, four Ficus, six, and sycamore Sylvan, oak, pine, and ten Eleven, twelve Count again! [x2] One, tulip, three-lip, four I was cedar on the floor but I stood up and made things happen

You’ve been creep creep creeping along, for a long time The creek will come up to meet you in the morning You’ve been creep creep creeping along, for a long time now The sun will come up to greet you in the morning But Sooner than soon [x3] You will rise too [x2] You’ve been creep creep creeping along, for a long time The creek will come up to meet you in the evening You’ve been creep creep creeping along, for a long time now The moon will come up to greet you in the evening But Sooner than soon [x3] You will rise too [x2] You will rise to the roof You will rise to the sky …moon …heavens on high …stars …nebulae …infinity You’ll arrive back in your own mind

Rain in the morning makes me happy Rain in the evening makes me smile Clouds overhead make me glad to be alive It hasn’t rained for a while It’s been a spell, since it has fell from above It’s been a spell, since I have fallen in love I know they’ll come a day when… Flowers will drink oh so gladly Rivers will flow with a tune Curtains will certainly open to cloudy days I hope the rain rains soon It’s been a spell, since it has fell from above It’s been a spell, since I have fallen in love I know they’ll come a day when… Rain in the morning heals my heartache Rain in the evening makes me swoon Clouds overhead make me so glad to be alive I hope the rain rains soon I hope the rain rains soon I hope the rain rains soon.

The end of the world as we know it is a-coming soon [x2] The rivers won’t flow The mountains won’t snow The lakes will dry Not a cloud in the sky You and I need to get our piece of the pie The end of the world as we know it is a-coming soon [x2] Bees won’t fly Cars won’t drive Trees won’t thrive Babies will cry You and I need to get our piece of the pie Cherry, apple, clementine Pecan, peach, or lemon lime I don’t mind the kind of pie As long as I can stay alive The end of the world as we know it is a-coming soon [x2] The sea’ll be salty Fault lines faulty Everything will die In the blink of an eye You and I need to get our piece of the pie Cherry, apple, clementine Pecan, peach, or lemon lime I don’t mind the kind of pie As long as I can stay alive The end of the world as we know it is a-coming soon [x2] The rivers won’t flow The mountains won’t snow The lakes will dry Not a cloud in the sky You and I need to get our piece of the pie

What’s right is right, surely, and wrong is wrong I find your eyes do sigh when the kettle's on You’ve held the whole world in your hands far too long As if each bird, each tree, was yours and yours alone You don’t have to feel so heavy You don’t have to bear it all You don’t have to feel so steady I’ll be there when trouble calls You don’t have to bear it all You don’t have to bear it alone Sometimes it seems so easy to play along To take the pain of the world with a grain of salt It’s equally easy to feel it’s all your fault But love can climb higher than the highest garden walls You don’t have to feel so happy You don’t have to bear it all You don’t have to feel so heavy I’ll be there when trouble calls You don’t have to bear it all You don’t have to bear it alone

In the whole world, all I got is you [x3] but you’ve got 8 billion me’s In the whole world, I’ve got a drop of dew [x3] But I’m just a drop in the stew Turn it upside down Now right side up Now twirl around Fall down, grow up [x2] In the dewdrops, the whole world is contained In the treetops, the whole world it does hang Just a few thoughts, dribble on like rain But the whole world remains within me Yeah, the whole world remains within me Turn it upside down Now right side up Now twirl around Fall down, grow up [x2] In the whole world, all I got is you [x3] but you’ve got 8 billion me’s Yeah, you’ve got 8 billion me’s You’ve got 8 billion me’s.

Slipping down the sidewalk again With my ragtag ragamuffin bunch of friends Wishing I had new shoes ‘cause these two I got are sure broke in I’m looking for an open door, I’m gonna walk right in I’m gonna walk right in Had a bunch of fun on Sunday Got real drunk and bummed on Monday Tues Weds Thursday, a blur Friday, Saturday, start over! I’m looking for an open door I’m gonna walk right in I’m gonna walk right in Met a psychic at the bar She said she would read my chart So far so good, but watch out kid – Things could get dark That’s why I’m looking for an open door I’m gonna walk right in I’m gonna walk right in I take any chance I get To do something I might regret To see something or be someone I ain’t been yet I’m sick and tired of closing doors I leave ‘em wide open I leave ‘em wide open That’s why I’m looking for an open door I’m gonna walk right in I’m gonna walk right in

"Heavy" was recorded at Gal Palace in Los Angeles, CA. That reverb is fer real.

All words and sounds by aerienne (except the rain, of course.)

about

Kitchen Hips Los Angeles, California

Kitchen Hips is the moniker of songwriter and folk musician, Aerienne Russell. Alongside Evan Hemsley, Russell makes melodious music steeped in hominess, heartache, and nostalgic whimsy.

As a self-taught musician with deep family roots in Appalachia, her music speaks to a simpler time, like the songs of The Carter Family and Connie Converse with a pinch of Lee Hazelwood’s wry wit.
