Elton John I Meant to Do My Work Today (A Day in the Country) Lyrics"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?
