04 Lawn Maintenance Whoopee !

( to the tune of  “I've been working on the railroad” )


I've been swinging a small engine
All the live long day
I've been swinging a small engine
Just to trim your grass away
Lord, you know this makes too much noise
By law I'm protected
Still, as you go to the office
You pass by giving me heck !

I've been packing a small engine
'Round ev'rything you've paved
I've been packing a small engine
Just to make long grass blow 'way
I will dance 'round like I'm Irish
I'm your biggest leprechaun
Moving 'round so quickly, you think
you won't hit me with your car
You may affirm boldly
The road was made for cars
But as you pull out of your driveway
A sidewalk cyclist door's your car

Is this absolutely needed
Ev'ry day after eight
No, not really on the days off
But only with holidays
You may know you still have three days
But we won't ever pass two
You're relaxing on your short lawn
As we trim gently round you

Ev'ry day of the whole week
We must agricate
And though it isn't even worth it
We agree to again work late
You will gladly overtake time
Ev'ry chance you get
Making much more for the same work
That we will never get
That way you can be home
Longer on weekends
And have a big, extra large pizza
Or not cook Uncle Ben's
That is truly clearly preferred
To a career you freely chose
And, again, as you're relaxing
Catch my finger blow my nose!
