I carry my heart in a bucket
I don’t even have a lid on it
You wouldn’t believe it
I walk with a swing and it sings (5 1 1 1 1)

I carry my bucket everywhere
And it’s light as a feather
You wouldn’t believe it
I crash into things and it sings (5 1 1 1 1)

I carry my bucket up mountains
And while paddling the roughest seas
You wouldn’t believe it even
With thunder and lightening it sings (5 1 1 1 1)

But there are times when the feathers add up
To a thousand pounds or more it seems
And when I look in, I see the reason
Why all of the wonderful drained out of me

It’s just a little tiny pin prick
A black hole that's being fed
You wouldn’t believe it
Made of nothing, but heavy as lead (5 5 1 1)

Was it voodoo being done to my bucket?
The piercing of trust to this vessel
You wouldn’t believe it
How a hole in my bucket can keep me from singing my heart out from inside a bucket (5 5 5 1 1)

Break - bridge - whistle - use the original whistle that’s been tuned up already.

Don’t you be a hole in my bucket - keep it full
I won’t be a hole in yours, keep it wonderful instead
You wouldn’t believe it,
It was made of nothing, but heavy as lead (5 5 1 1)

Cause I carry my heart in a bucket
Just like everyone else - I know it
You wouldn’t believe it
I walk with a skip and a crash and a swing and it sings (5 5 1 1)
You wouldn’t believe it
We all walk with a skip and a crash and a swing and it sings (5 5 1 1)
You wouldn’t believe it (5 5 1)
