Song meaning[edit]

Bird, when asked about the title of the song, reportedly said that the word "Sovay" was one he had heard in an old English nursery rhyme, but had never bothered to actually research. He also said that he preferred to misunderstand the meanings of songs rather than "[getting] a lyric sheet."[1] Bird's lyrics incorporates the opening lyrics and music of the English folk song Sovay.
