The Lyrics

well, the folks on the street
say i let my lawn go
i ain't had the time
its been growin' to the back door

i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i'll be rakin' up some leaves
up in smoke, they will go
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
haven't checked in so long
where's the time gone ?
i'll be settin' things straight
i'll be weedin' till dawn
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i need to mow...(i need to mow)

i kinda thought
that my lawn looked just fine
all of a sudden
i looked at it...oh my !

i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i'll be rakin' up some leaves
up in smoke, they will go
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
haven't checked in so long
where's the time gone ?
i'll be settin' things straight
i'll be weedin' till dawn
i need to mow...(i need to mow)
i need to mow...(i need to mow)

Good Job, Alvin, when I sold my last house I GAVE the buyer my lawnmower (on which I had just spent $250 replacing the engine which puked when the blade hit a tree root). No more lawns for me, man! Hey, I just stumbled across your "Town Full of Mourners" and loved it! Who are Stanley, Kenny, and Kyle? (Liked your Bell Florist joke, btw)
