Paroles :Through mostly vacant streets, A baker form the out-skirts of his town, Earned his living peddling sweets from a ragged cart he dragged around. The clever fox crept close behind, Kept an ever watchful eye, For a chance to steal a ginger spice cake, Or a boysenberry pie. Looking down was the hungry crow: When the time is right, I'll strike, And condescend to the earth below And take whichever treat I'd like. The moment the baker turned around To shoo the fox off from his cart, The crow swooped down, And snatched a short bread cookie and a German chocolate tart. Using most unfriendly words, That the village children had not yet heard, The baker shouted threats by canzonet to curse the crafty bird. You rotten wooden mixing spoon, Why you midnight winged raccoon, You better bring those pastries back you no good bird-black macaroon. The fox approached the tree Where the bird was perched, delighted in his nest. Brother Crow, don't you remember me? It's your old friend Fox with a humble request. If you could share just a modest piece, Seeing as I distracted that awful man. This failed to persuade the crow, And in the least so, The fox rethought his plan. Then if your lovely song would grace my ears, Or to even to hear you speak, Would ease my pains and fears! The crow looked down, with a candy in his beak. Your poems of wisdoms, my good crow What a paradise they bring! This flattery pleased the proud bird so, He opened his mouth and began to sing: Your subtle acclamations true, Best to give praise where praise is due. Every rook and jay in the Corvidae's been raving about me too. They admire me, one and all, Must be the passion in my caw, My slender bill known throughout the escadrille, My fierce commanding claw I've got a walnut brownie brain, And molasses in my veins, Crushed the graham cracker crust, My powdered sugared funnel cake cocaine. Let the crescent cookie rise, These carom colored almond eyes, Would rest to see my cashewed princess, In the swirling marble sky. Would rest upon my knee, Where all divisions cease to be, A root-beer float, In our banana boat, Across the tapioca sea, When letting all attachments go, Is the only prayer we know, May it be so, May it be so, May it be so, Oh.

Créateur de Beehave en 2007 avec Christelle qu'il épousera un an après, Jérémie apprécie toutes les formes du rock, surtout celles qui contiennent de la double pédale et de la saturation. Né à l'époque des pattes d'eff, il apprécie aussi tout particulièrement le glam, le thrash et le power métal, même s'il se fait chambrer à cause de ça par ceux qui sont nés dans les années 90.
