The Prettiest Flower
Lyrics by David Faraday.
Music based on the song 'Sippin’ Cider Through A Straw' by Carey Morgan
The prettiest flower, I ever saw,
Grows on a verge, I live next door.
This lovely flower, it is so sweet,
A dazzling sight, down at my fee.
There are some more, along the way,
They make me smile, everyday.
They bring the bees and butterflies,
It seems that nature’s on the rise.
Maybe we can, spread joy and smiles,
If we re-wild for miles and miles.
Make every verge and patch of land,
Teem with flowers, that would be grand.
It’s just the start, I can see more,
Urban farms from door to door.
Polluting cars pushed out of town
And fruit and veg that no one owns.
Community, we’ll all help out
And climate change will turn about.
We’ll breath clean air and watch the birds,
Because our voices have been heard.
The natural world not kept at bay,
Allowed to thrive in every way.
Enjoyed by all, as children play.
Oh, what a dream, let’s start today.
But it might not to be, ‘cause I saw them come
And from their van they got a gun.
The spray was quick, it made me sick,
That lovely flower, replaced with brick.
