The Lyrics

Grandfather Funk Railroad and the Perils of Old Age
To my children, I am older
And my pleasures, are few
I'm your Father, I'm your Father
I will do what I will do

Some may think that, I am foolish
But this happens, when your this age
Something Special, Something Special
To release me from this cage

You might say that, their quite ugly
As they stand upon the greens
I need more now, I need more now
Too few would be obscene

Why are they always complaining?
That I'm mad and deranging
Cause of some little men outside

Their not lawn decorations
But substitute companions
Since my family left me here to die

Their always here now, when I need them
That's more I can say, of all of you
You have left me, you have left me
What's a lonely man left to do

I'm your Father, I'm your Father
Their my friends and not my toys
When your older, you will all see
So let me be, and enjoy

I'm your Father it's my money
I'm your Father it's not funny
I'm your Father they all like me
I'm your Father just let me be

I'm gonna buy some more lawn gnomes
I'm gonna buy some more lawn gnomes
( Repeat 22 more times and Fade Out)

Interesting subject with the parallel of the father to the gnomes. Really liked the line "I'm your Father - It's my money" Pacing a bit rough - could be better, but not too bad. You really need to do some grammar study with your/you're and there/their/they're however. :)

Trolls are a '"Must for the Garden ", Sir ! SummerWinds had a series of naked GardenTrolls(quite pricey, too) that I placed in discrete places on the Campagna . . . Quite a surprise for the Cowboy who stumbles upon these Beastly Characters. . . .
