Baby I know it's a leafless life we lead -
if I could only get my hands on the sun
Is it the rain, or the Seagram's in the soil?
Give me a whiff darling, I'll be around

If I could see the forecast to your needs
I'd be a-chained every night to the TV
But I'll keep trying guessing your wants
Give me a whiff darling, I'll be around

See, I see you baby
waiting around in the house all day
looking to the problems with the world out there

You're talking about the bee population
and it's decline, well I say
let them decline... they'll be declining tomorrow too

Let me get you dug deeper down into the soil
Give me a spade baby, I'll work it out

I'll get you dug deeper down
I'll dig you down
deeper down
deeper down
deeper down

You're my jungle cactus - and I'll see you around, deep in the vines, beneath the trail
I'll pour you out one day
back into the earth
I'll leave you behind
But I'll see you back there one day
