Set of the Day

"Little Yellow Spider" by eyesthatlie

Sunglasses. For some reason, that seems to be the only reason I can come up with for why this is Set of the Day. Not that the whole outfit isn't awesome. I love the orange t-shirt with those particular skinny jeans and the matching orange shoes...and I don't want to discount the animal print bag or Devendra all plays a part in the coolness of this set. But if I take out those sunglasses...It's just a mildly good set. However...WITH the sunglasses, this set is unbeatable. UN. BEATABLE. Great way to top off Freakin' Awesome Fridays!

"Little Yellow Spider"
by Devendra Banhart

Little yellow spider laughing at the snow
Well maybe that spider knows something that I don't know
Cuz I'm goddamn cold

Little white monkey staring at the sand
Maybe that monkey figured out something I couldn't understand
Who knows

Well I came upon a dancing crab and I stopped to watch it shake, I said,
'Dance for me just one more time before ya hibernate,
and ya come out a crab cake'

And hey there little snapping turtle, snapping at a shell
Oh there's mysteries inside I know
But what they are I just can't tell for sure

And hey there little baby crow, you're looking kind of mean
I think I oughta split before ya start letting off your steam
For sure

And hey there little sexy pig, you mated with a man
And now you've got a little kid
With hooves instead of hands

And oh all of the animals, all of the animals

And hey there little mockingbird, they sing about you in songs
'Oh where ya been? Have ya broke a wing?'
I haven't heard ya in so long

And hey there little albatross, swimming in the air
'Aw, come on you know I can't fly and I
Think we really oughta play fair'

And hey there mister happy squid, you move so psychedelically
You hypnotize with your magic dance all the animals in the sea
For sure

And oh all of the animals, all the animals

And hey there Mr. Morning Sun, what kind of creature are you
I can't stare, but I know you're there
Goddamn, how I wish I knew

And hey there Mrs. Lovely Moon, you're lonely and you're blue
It's kind of strange the way you change
But then again we all do, too.
