Lyrics

Some will count their sheep at night
others will sleep all day
the other side of the white washed fence
is where we dream to play
where the grass grows green
and the grass grows high
and many deft places to hide,
but low and behold
the weeds can come
in the early spring of the mind

Spring of the mind

Jack and Jill tripped up the hill
each with a fire hose
but by the time they'd reached the top
the fire had gone out
so they sharpened their fingers
and dulled their toes
on hopes in steep decline
lo and behold them weeds did come
in the early spring of the mind

Spring of the mind

Then some things went bitter
when you dropped the sugar bowl
climbing up that ladder
when did you start looking down?

Faeries spread dust that'll make you sneeze
and nymphs will continually tease
no more rabbits from the magic hat
as life rolls up its sleeves
into bed, up off your knees
time for a restful sleep
you'll need your strength to pull them weeds
in the early spring of the mind

Spring of the mind

Then some things went bitter
when you dropped the sugar bowl
climbing up that ladder
when did you stop?
when did you stop?

Then some things went bitter
when you dropped the sugar bowl
climbing up that ladder
when did you start looking down?

Some mistake, the same mistake
don't give in to what they couldn't take
Some mistake, the same mistake
don't give up what they want to take
