  • All my life I thought I was the one to save the world
    It would come easy
    Now I'm old enough to sit around and piss and moan instead

    Plant a tree and I will gladly admire its beauty
    10 to 12 inches
    Don't expect that I will get out of my chair to watch it grow

    And I was a blooming flower
    Blossoming from the seed
    And I was a blooming flower
    Turn my back and turn to
    Weed

    Those are people with their votes and all them hippie thoughts
    They do it better
    If I got involved I'd only get in everybody's way

    Shine my shoes and I won't say a word behind your back
    Yeah we're all brothers
    Don't expect that I will share my plate when your ribs start to show

    And I was a blooming flower
    Blossoming from the seed
    And I was a blooming flower
    Turn my back and turn to

    Dandelion dandelion
    Souls of you and me
    How can you smell so bad but look so pretty?

    And I was a blooming flower
    Blossoming from the seed
    And I was a blooming flower
    Turn my back and turn to

    I was a blooming flower
    Blossoming from the seed
    And I was a blooming flower
    Turn my back and turn to
    Turn my back and turn to
    Turn my back and turn to
    Weed
