"I Meant to Do My Work Today (A Day in the Country)" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
"I meant to do my work today
The brown bird sang in the apple tree
I know that's why ....
And a butterfly flittered across 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 handâ??
So what could I do but laugh and go?
