The Garden Song<br><br>
Words and music by Dave Mallett<br><br><br><br>
Inch by inch, row by row<br><br>
Gonna make this garden grow<br><br>
All it takes is a rake and a hoe<br><br>
And a piece of fertile ground.<br><br><br><br>
Inch by inch, row by row<br><br>
Someone bless these seeds I sow<br><br>
Someone warm them from below<br><br>
Till the rain comes tumblin' down<br><br><br><br>
Pullin' weeds and pickin' stones<br><br>
Man is made of dreams and bones<br><br>
Feel the need to grow my own<br><br>
'Cause the time is close at hand<br><br><br><br>
Rainful rain, sun and rain<br><br>
Find my way in nature's chain<br><br>
Tune my body and my brain<br><br>
To the music from the land<br><br><br><br>
Plant your rows straight and long<br><br>
Temper them with prayer and song<br><br>
Mother Earth will make you strong<br><br>
If you give her love and care<br><br><br><br>
Old crow watchin' hungrily<br><br>
From his perch in yonder tree<br><br>
In my garden I'm as free<br><br>
As that feathered thief up there!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

The Anti-Garden Song<br><br>
(Words by Eric Kilburn)<br><br>
(Parody of Dave Mallet's "The Garden Song")<br><br><br><br>
CHO: Slug by slug, weed by weed,<br><br>
My garden's got me really teed<br><br>
All the insects love to feed upon my tomato plants<br><br>
Sunburned face, scratched-up knees<br><br>
My kitchen's choked with zucchinis<br><br>
I'm shopping at the A & P next time I get a chance.<br><br><br><br>
The crabgrass grows, the ragweed thrives,<br><br>
The broccoli has long since died.<br><br>
The only things left still alive are some radishes and beans.<br><br>
My carrot plants are dead and gone,<br><br>
Hear the rabbits sing a happy song<br><br>
Until you've weeded all day long<br><br>
You don't know what boredom means<br><br>
Chorus<br><br><br><br>
You get up early, work till late<br><br>
Watch moles and mice get overweight<br><br>
They eat their dinners on a plate from the hard work you have done<br><br>
As ye sow so shall ye reap,<br><br>
But I smell like a compost heap<br><br>
I'm gonna get that lousy creep<br><br>
who said gardening was fun<br><br>
