"Granny's Little Yard Gnome" as written by and Les Claypool....
Content to stand alone
Waiting, watching, guarding Granny's home
His face reflecting simple joy
But he is not a happy Plaster boy

"Careful sonny, not too close
Unless you want a lethal dose
Of hardening..."
Patiently waiting for some shade

Wishing he could run away
Supressing any urge to roam
Such devotion from a little gnome
I once saw a calico that thought he could fly

And then the lanky Doberman that tinkled in my eye
A pacifist by nature, with amble common sense
But if I had my druthers, I'd rather be a fence
Now Granny, she's a good one, she shines me now and then

And come around this springtime, I'm due for paint again
On keeping Granny comfy, I try and earn my keep
I'm just wishing I had some eyelids, so I could get some sleep

    General CommentLyrically Les is some-where out there with so many different dimensions of 'characters' he's covered in his songs or writings. This song takes care of a little gnome who keeps lil ol'e to granny to sleep. A simple yard gnome who surpresses any urge to roam.
