Lyrics

Springtime In the Garden

Springtime in the Garden
Dad puts the flowers out
The robin sings a hearty song
the bees all buzz about

Having washed the laundry
Mother puts it out to dry
While in the spiders silken web
is trapped a little fly

One of our neighbors calls up
His dog just killed our cat
But he's not liable
and he has proof of that

Dad goes and gets the body
He keeps it out of sight
And everyone is quiet
As we watch TV that night

There's a lonely old man
Kid's call him Crazy Pete
His car and house are filled with trash
He lives on the next street

His wife died in childbirth
This affected him no doubt
But the kids just don't give a damn
And smash his windows out

On the street my friend Charlie
Has sme pictures in his hand
They show a man and woman
She's chained him to a stand

They're half dressed inleather
They both have black masks on
I ask Charlie what they're doing
He says they're having fun

Refrain :
Let's go play in the stream
Of our flowing memory
Let's jump in and splash about
Maybe we'll figure something out
But you know what people say
Today is just a yesterday, yesterday, yesterday...

The end of day has finally come
The goodnights have been said
I kiss both dad and mommy
And go upstairs to bed

I now lay me down to sleep
Watch moving shadows on the wall
I think the whole day over
The things i felt and saw

I think about the spider
The fly and Crazy Pete
then the cards that Charlie showed me
While standing on the street

When I think about our cat
I begin to cry
It all seemed like a mystery then
And today i still ask "why?"
