I Meant to Do My Work Today (a Day in The Country) - Elton John
I meant to do my work today
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree
I know that one, too ....
And a b_tterfly flitted accross the field
And all the leaves were calling me
And the B_ttercups nodded their smiling heads
Greeting the bees who came to call
And I asked the lizard the time of day
As he sunned himself on a moss-grown wall
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand
So what could I do but laugh and go?
