Luthea Salom — Backyards lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Backyards" by Luthea Salom.

Lyrics

he got a girl and she got a kite
and they got the big fat world lying right outside their own backyard
instead they watch it on television
they talk about it then decide that they hate pigeons
from their own fat couch
and in the meantime
days turn to night
seasons turn to years
years turn to light
i read about them in a magazine
when i was a little pig-tailed girl running around our own backyard
dreaming about the day
that i would meet my man
and we would ride away beyond those gates
but, oh, that day never came
and in the meantime days turn to night
seasons turn to years
years turn to light
i got a boy and he got a bike
and we got the big fat world lying right outside our own backyard
now this daughter of mine is running wild within the corners of our own backyard
and in the meantime
days turn to night
seasons turn to years
years turn to light
and all the busy bees keep pollinating trees
the sun keeps dangling from big fat skies
