Description
So I was sitting in my office, looking out at my overgrown, ragged, weed-ridden lawn one day, and decided I'd better do something about it. So I did: I wrote a song!

Lyrics
April showers bring May flowers and the summer sun warms the seeds
The trees get green, the bushes, too. And the usual crop of weeds
The grass grows tall and the vines grow thick. Little trees start a-peekin’ through
After a while, it gets so tall it begins to obstruct the view

CHORUS:
Oh, it’s nice to have a healthy lawn, but things can get out of hand
Before you know it, the summer’s come and gone
The grass so high it’ll reach the sky. We just gotta take a stand!
Pretty soon, now…you’re gonna have to mow the lawn!

I got my boy a basketball and said “Go outside and play”
The ball bounced out into the yard; we ain’t seen it since that day.
I got my girl a puppy. She took it outside to wet.
The dog walked off into the weeds, and I think it’s out there yet.

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Well, the fellas came from the Guiness book / They stepped out back to take a look
They said “There’s got to be a record here!”
The search party said they couldn’t find a thing / That lawn just swallows up everything.
Amazing how this happens every year.

Oh, the bugs just love it, it’s a wonderful thing, and it’s cool ‘cause there’s lots of shade
And nobody comes ‘round uninvited, ‘cuase (let’s face it) they’re so afraid
There’s patio furniture (at least there was) and a swing set, too, I think
And a shed and a birdbath, a picnic table, and prob’ly the kitchen sink!

A mailman found his way to the house with a letter (‘fore he dropped out of sight).
The Town Council says “ya gotta mow your lawn and your property is a blight.”
But the mower’s broek and I’m outta gas - but it’s OK, ‘cause I know
Couple months from now — won’t matter anyhow — when it’s buried under the snow!

Oh, it’s nice to have a healthy lawn, but things can get out of hand
Before you know it, the summer’s come and gone
The grass so high it’ll reach the sky. We just gotta take a stand!
Pretty soon, now…you’re gonna have to mow the lawn!

Heehee
Good summer tune! We got rain today, which means when the sun beats down tomorrow, the grass will grow dramatically fast. Better to sing about mowing, than to complain, though. :-)

Funny and wry lyrics David
Love the Banjo in the back and the rest of the back tracks. Nice relaxed vocal that does justice by the song, and shows you don't take things too serious, at least not on a fun song like this one.

Great bit of work on this one too my friend.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
