Mother nature's been good to me
That's why I'm sittin in this cherry tree
But it's alright, it's alright
It's not so bad
I'm just a touch away

The shady lady
from shady lane
is lying in my bed again
and it's alright
it feels good
It's not so bad
When she's just a touch away

Nothing much
is all I ask
and it's alright, ok yes
Light as a feather, oh yes

Like a rosebud
when the sun is high
She opens up
before my eyes
and the light falls
on her wet skin
It's alright
I'm just a touch away

Nothing much
is all I know
and it's alright, oh yes
Light as a feather,
and just a touch away

Put a finger to her lips again
She cries with pleasure
cries wih pain
and it's alright
It feels good
It's not so bad
We're just a touch away

Nothing much
is all I know
Not too fast
Not too slow
and it's alright
Soft as a feather
and just a touch away
