The Lyrics

Mowing in the morning, mowing weeds with pollen
Growing like the bamboo, one of my pet peeves
Chopping down this forest, as my eyes are weeping
Allergies are raging, raking up the leaves

Raking up the leaves, raking up the leaves
I will be a-sneezing, raking up the leaves
Raking up the leaves, raking up the leaves
I will be a-wheezing, raking up the leaves

Mowing on the easement, hacking through the bushes
Wish I had a gardener, but they charge high fees
Wish I had a condo, labor's never ending
Just coughed up a phlegm wad, raking up the leaves

Raking up the leaves, raking up the leaves
I will be a-sneezing, raking up the leaves
Raking up the leaves, raking up the leaves
I will be a-wheezing, raking up the leaves

Finishing the sweeping, putting out the garbage
As I'm looking skyward, wind blows through the trees
Thought my task was over, but the brief tornado
Left my lawn all covered, with a bunch of leaves

Raking up the leaves, raking up the leaves
I will be a-sneezing, raking up the leaves
Raking up the leaves, raking up the leaves
I will be a-wheezing, raking up the leaves
