WHEN IT'S GETTIN' PLANTIN' TIME
Did you ever feel that way,
When warm weather's comin' on, An' you smell the green things growin'
Thro' the dusk an' thro' the dawn? Jes' a sort o' stretchy feelin',
With your thoughts all out o' rhyme, Jes' a lazy, dazy feelin',
When it's gettin' plantin' time.
When it's gettin' plantin' time,
An' the grangers sort the seed, An' the women start house cleanin',
An' the blackbird's in the reed. Land-a-mighty! hain't you lazy!
Why, you're scarcely worth a dime, All the work you do is hardship
When it's gettin' plantin' time.
'Drather go an' set an' lis'n To the curlews' callin' there,
'Drather watch the sunbeams dancin' On the gleamy, glinty air. '
'Drather lay back sort o' languid, 'Drather do most anything
'Sides workin', when it's gettin'
■ Plantin' time along in spring.
[81]
