If the weatherís kind of foggy
And the ground is extra soggy

And all the air is sort of gray
You really canít see far away

It feels like rain is going to pour
But itís just mist and nothing more

Itís MAUZY

If you are out that time of day
When eveningís soon to go away

The sun is crawling into bed
The moon is not yet overhead

Itís not quite day and not quite night
Itís not quite dark and not quite light

Itís DUCKISH
