Just A Little Lighthearted Fun
So many times I am doing something or hear a phrase and a song will pop into my head. Generally the song is a popular older song from the radio with a quirky twist. :)
My husband and I were out in the garden the other evening and I started singing this little ditty:
Hello Garden, my old friend, I've come to weed in you again.... Which led my husband and I to think of other songs and change the words to be about gardening. Here are a few we came up with:
Yesterday, all my weeding seemed so far away, now it looks as though it's here to stay, oh I believe in yesterday, suddenly, I've got half the crop there used to be...
In the land where I was born, lived a man who planted peas, a sky of blue, a pea of green in his yellow suburban jeans....
Sittin in the burdock and the bay... watchin' the clouds roll away, tasting thyme...
Yes, this is what goes through my mind sometimes out in the garden. It always puts a smile on my face and makes the time fly. Hope this put a smile on your face, too!
What song lyrics can you come up with?
