Pygmy Forest Song

I lost you out there. You never came on home. I called for you and I called to you, but you never came on home. I lost you out there, in the bushes and the brush. I called for you and I yelled for you, but you never did come home. Don't say you couldn't hear me. I won't listen if you do. I lost you, and I left you, and you never came on home. I lost you out there, but it's what you seemed to want. I yelled for you for nights and days, but you never once yelled back. I walked and walked between the trees, squinting toward the sun. I called for you and I screamed for you, but no, you never did come home.
