LYRICS FOR Mother Nature

If there’s understanding
Not much more can be said
You give me my family
I’ll give you your daily bread
And the seeds of time will flourish on the land
Mother nature will take her course
Father time will take his stand
But if you spend your lonely life
Just looking for one man
Then the seeds of time will wither in your hands

Mother nature is sound
But father time wears the crown
And he’ll take away our youth
Before we’ve time to turn around
I’ll not say that I’ll sell my soul
Hang my hat where you call it home
So before my time make up your mind
Or the ropes may take a hold

The open gates will not hesitate
To close if I sit down
But subordination of a stubborn man
Turns his world upside down
So I’ll trail my tail if my music wears a frown
It’s easy to sit on concrete steps
And soak up the backyard sun
But to leap out front with both eyes closed
I guess I’ve jumped the gun
So take my hand and we’ll plough ‘till life is done
