Just a great little Tiny Desk concert by The Tallest Man on Earth, who’s from Sweden and really isn’t very tall.

Swedish native, Kristian Matsson, a.k.a. The Tallest Man on Earth, plays a few tracks from his debut album “Shallow Grave.”

The Gardener

I sense a runner in the garden
Although my judgements known to fail
Once built a steamboat in a meadow
Cos I’d forgotten how to sail

I know the runner’s going to tell you
There ain’t no cowboy in my hair
So now he’s buried by the daisies
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe

I sense a spy up in the chimney
From all the evidence I’ve burned
And I guess he’ll read it in the smoke now
And soon to ashes I’ll return

I know the spy is going to tell you
It’s not my flag up in the pole
So now he’s buried by the lilies
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe

I sense a leak inside my phone now
From all the lies that I have told
I know he has your private number
And soon he’ll make that vicious call

I know the leak is going to tell you
There ain’t no puppy in your leash
So now he’ll fertilize the roses
So I could stay the king you see
In your eyes, babe

Well now we’re dancing through the garden
And what a garden I have made
And now that death will grow my jasmine
I find it soothing I’m afraid

Now there is no need for suspicion no no
There ain’t no fraud kissing your hand
I won’t be lying when I tell you
That I’m a gardener I’m a man
In your eyes babe

Producing satire is kind of hopeless because of the literacy rate of the American public. -- A quote in response to criticism of "Jewish Princess" ("People" magazine, circa 1979)
