If life is a rat race then I want to lose.
If it’s do or die then I want to choose.
If love is the answer then I know it all.
I’ve seen the forest for the trees and no it ain’t that eas-y to explain….

I’ll get up in the morning and do all my chores.
And when it’s your day off I’ll do all of yours.
Pancakes for breakfast and I’ll fry the eggs.
I see the light in the tunnel hear me out I’m trying to explain….

A little house.
A great big yard.
A few fruit trees.
It’s not that hard.
To build a life.

We’ll build a tree fort behind the red barn.
You’ll shear the sheep and I’ll spin the yarn.
Our gardens we’ll sow and eat the rewards.
We’ll leave the leaves on the ground and never rake them again…

A little house.
A great big yard.
A deep clean well.
It’s not that hard.
To build a life.
