"Mushaboom" as written by and Leslie Feist....
Helping the kids out of their coats
But wait the babies haven't been born oh oh oh
Unpacking the bags and setting up
And planting lilacs and buttercups oh oh oh

But in the meantime I've got it hard
Second floor living without a yard
It may be years until the day
My dreams will match up with my pay

Old dirt road (mushaboom)
Knee deep snow (mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow (mushaboom)
Old

I've got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house oh oh oh
And we'll collect the moments one by one
I guess that's how the future's done oh oh oh

How many acres how much light
Tucked in the woods and out of sight
Talk to the neighbours and tip my cap
On a little road barely on the map

Old dirt road (mushaboom)
Knee deep snow (mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow (mushaboom)
Old
Old dirt road
Rambling rose (mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow (mushaboom)
Well earnesd soul

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

    General CommentMushaboom is a village on the southeast coast of Nova Scotia, about 75 miles east of Halifax. Presumably an idyllic location to settle down and live a quiet life.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! It's definitely one of my favourite Feist songs.

    To me, this song has always been about living life to its fullest and enjoying everything you can. It's so cute, and Feist has such a nice voice!

    General Commentthis song is great...
    the way her voice raises up and down.
    the bright eyes cover is good as well, although it doesn't match up to the original.

    General CommentI finally got a hold of it and, yes, it was lovely. I still like the original better. The only problem is, whenever I get the song stuck in my head, it plays back as Feist's music with Oberst's voice. *shakes head*
