Come let me show you the secret of life
I’ve known it awhile same goes for the wife
We keep it out there, way out the back
Watch out for snakes and keep to the track
Fresh air and sunshine how blessed are we
When you open your eyes there is plenty to see.
Don’t mind old ‘Bluey’ he usually don’t bite
But if he starts growlin’ just RUN for your life.
He guards the secret to keep it from thieves
Brothers and sisters you had better believe
Open the gate even though it ain’t locked
It’s always been there so prepare to be shocked
We’ve finally arrived and admission is free
Ancient knowledge is yours and here is the key.
The cycle of life resides here in the garden
There can’t you see, Joni’s billion year old carbon.
Providing for family their personal food bowl
Pulling up weeds is good for our souls
It grounds you and your fingernails to good mother earth
At least that is my thinking For What It’s Worth
I feel part of the cosmos at least for a while
Down by the fish pond and the concrete sundial
Surrounded by hollyhock, lupines and limes
You hear primal echoes reverberate through time
Everywhere is art it’s a privilege to see
The flowers in bloom and the birds and the bees.
This day I’ll be Adam and you can be Eve,
I’ll tell the boss lies and take my ‘sick leave’.
