lyrics

Long ago, in a village far gone,
a party of two had not been married for long.
They decided they needed a goose for their farm,
and surprise had them singin' a most wonderful song:

"Oh you bring us such fortune,
and it's only just begun.
Oh you bring us such fortune,
why not more?"

A man and his wife found their first golden egg.
Straight from a goose it was recently laid.
They sold it for money to buy things they want,
but weren't getting all that they cared to.
So they sang:

"Oh you bring us such fortune,
and it's only just begun.
Oh you bring us such fortune,
why not more?"

They thought that she just might be gilded inside.
The goose fled for life, with no chances to hide.
They tore the bird up with a dull butcher's knife,
but they would spend most of their miserable lives,
without hope of the gold that the bird fabricated.
Right then from their eyes they had precipitated, crying

"Oh you brought us such fortune.
It had only just begun.
Oh you brought us such fortune,
Now no more.
Oh you brought us such fortune.
It had only just begun.
Oh you brought us such fortune,
now no more.
Now no more"

about

Juniperus Saskatchewan

In 2013, Jeffrey Popiel began a solo project titled 'Juniperus'. His inspired originals have more recently taken on a new life with the pursuit of ÆSOP's Fables. While these new 'fable songs' reside in the realm of folk, they present themselves in a diverse way, by using distinct voicing for each character, and swaying between genres, such as ambient folk, quirky pop, and folky blues. ... more
