so that's what this song's about
Daisy is really and truly the coolest person there ever could be
(M: Now she has a fan base!
D: She's always had a fan base.)
if you missed her at Folklife (where she deservedly received a standing ovation in a crowded theatre
after spontaneous applause and laughter in the middle of songs
because they are so true and hopeful and beautiful), you can listen to her songs online at www.etandtheboy.org
