I Meant to Do My Work Today (A Day in the Country) - Elton John

Album: Friends

genre: Rock

I meant to do my work today
The brown bird sang in the apple tree
I know that’s why

And a butterfly flittered accross the field
And all the leaves were calling me
And the Buttercups nodded their smiling heads

Greeting the bees who came to call
And I asked the lizard the time of day
And the wind went sighing over the land
Tossing the grasses to and fro
And a rainbow held out its shining hand
So what could I do but laugh and go?
