The Lyrics

Haaaaaay...
Ain't washin' I can hang, bushes I can prune
No need to vac, and, no meals to cook
I could not put it off, this grassy task accursed
Even if I cease,
If I cease to be
While cuttin' furze

'Cus the good mower blade's gonna snappy
Oh! I think I mowed a squirrel!
Only wish it wasn't overgrown
Therefore, so, a scary yard to mow
(a scary yard to mow) Got no turf control!
(a scary yard to mow) Tare-a-estr'l woes!

Haaaaaay...
I know that tines will come
I'll be impaled by hidden rakes
Terrifies me - the thought of treadin' on a 'curl'
Bein' coiled by grass snakes
Those weeds have all upgrew
Much higher than Big Ben then
So 'fraid I'll step and slide, I'm gonna step and slide
And not be seen again man

Hope don't discover my long lost pappy
When I do the rot'ry whirl!
Bonely fresh in hidden undergrowth
Leaves it so, scary yard to mow
(a scary yard to mow) 'Fraid I'll lose my toes
(a scary yard to mow) Oh! Blade hit a stone!
Haaaaaay...

(jungle interlude)

I should hire "Blake" - garden chappy
Oooh! Well-built with flaxen curls!
Then could sit there sippin' daiqu'ris slow
Won't be so, scary yard to mow!
(a merry garden show!) Watch those muscles glow!
(so very Fabio!) Oh! He's buff you know!

(strawberry daiqu'ris flow!)
Thinkin' 'bout leavin' the lawn today 'cus the man's got some body!
(upstairs we're gonna go...) Hay! Hay! Hay! Hay!
