I Meant To Do My Work Today (A Day in the Country) (Elton John)

I meant to do my work today But a brown bird sang in the apple tree I know that one, too .... And a butterfly flitted accross the field And all the leaves were calling me And the Buttercups nodded their smiling heads Greeting the bees who came to call And I asked the lizard the time of day As he sunned himself on a moss-grown wall And the wind went sighing over the land, Tossing the grasses to and fro, And a rainbow held out its shining hand? So what could I do but laugh and go?
