Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The - The Horseshoe And The Rabbit's Foot Lyrics




The horseshoe and the rabbit's foot
As luck would have it we were put
Right through the wringer recently
Which took a decent piece of me
I know that in all likelihood
That it's most likely gone for good
And I for one am good with that
So currently that's where we're at

Let's just leave well enough alone for now
We should say goodnight
I believe the horseshoe and the rabbits foot
And in the morning everything will be all right

The houndstooth and the herringbone
We couldn't have but should have known
The wringer rang it right on out
I wonder what's it all about
The story's changed so drastically
There's got to be a way that we
Could try to listen and receive
Accept acknowledge and believe

Let's just leave well enough alone for now
We should say goodnight
I beleive the houndstooth and the herringbone
And in the morning everything will be all right

Lullabies and long goodbyes and I'll admit to it
I don't know what to say to you sometimes
I believe that we should just leave it alone and hopefully
In the morning everything will be all right

The sharkskin and the tortoiseshell
As luck would have it all is well
That ends like this did any way
We said all that we hat to say
And can't diminish or dismiss
There's something to be said for this
Or nothing left that should be said
Let's leave it alone instead
I think the conversation's dead

Let's just leave well enough alone for now
We should say goodnight
I believe the sharkskin and the tortoiseshell
And I believe the houndstooth and the herringbone
And I believe the horseshoe and the rabbit's foot
And in the morning everything will be all right

  1. Altus

    I would LOVE to hear a cornet or trumpet playing with them. Anyone with me?

  2. DABtheBoo

    Gotta love the stones! Not the rolling ones, the MIGHTY ones!!

  3. DeepDeepBlue

    This song's amazing :D

    I have no idea what you mean. What I'm saying is that most people don't know any song by the bosstones except for the Impression That I Get, outside of Boston. Besides, I don't even live in Boston. Can you explain what you meant? Because that made no sense at all.

  5. brandonha

    You don't get out of boston much do you?

    This is the kind of song that you put on as background music... and get so absorbed in that you forget to do the thing you were trying to do. Which doesn't help when trying to write an essay. Easily one of their best songs, and I'm glad that after so long they can still make songs as good as this.

    @OzzieOlin I think Reel Big Fish takes the cake of most well known... and to be honest, I've only heard one Bosstones song on commercial non-Boston radio, in movies, and on TV. I think we both know what song that is. The one about not knocking on wood. That's the one. Most people haven't heard any other song by them.

  8. Nefarius696

    Liked and faved.

    @RileyM1989 They're easily the most well-known American ska band. Their music has been in tons of films and commercials and they themselves appeared in Clueless, one of the most significant pop cultural landmarks of the 1990s. Underrated may be a bit generous.

    Didn't even know they had a new one out until I saw this vid. Great news!
