Shes closing all the shades
She finds the daylight just a little freighting
She pulls the petals overhead each day
But shes opening her business is blooming nightly
And every time it does it gets me crazy
The color of her head changing every day
A little breathe, a wind and I just go crazy
The greening of americas progressing smoothly
Cause shes choosing me

It's later then I said
And all the world's a shade of black and purple
Everybody else has gone to bed
But when she makes me happy I just fly in circles

And every time she does I just get teary
The color of her hair changing everyday
A little puff of wind and shes always near me
The greening of america is progressing nicely
Its all right with me

Ba ba ba ba na na na na na etc.

If there's another life, and if get to choose I'd like
To be a daisy
I'll stay up waiting for my dusky wife
To open and get high with just my jasmine baby

And every time she does it gets me crazy
The color of her hiar changing every day
A little breathe of wind and I just get crazy
The greening of americas progressing nicely
Its all right with me-every time she does, just get teary
The color of her hair changing every day
A little breath of wind and she's always near me
The greening of americas progressing smoothly
Cause she's choosing me

    General CommentThe atmosphere of this song is so odd. I can't quite place what it reminds me of, but it's there and it's strangley good.
