The Mountain Goats - The Garden Song

The Mountain Goats - The Garden Song - Lyrics

"Where's Spike when you need him? Huh?
I'm warning you
You? Warning me?
Cut it out!"

I see the flowers in your garden are in bloom
I see the flags are flying high
I hear you've gone and rearranged things in your room
I guess you're trying to cut-off my air supply

I came toward your window, real slowly
I knew deep down I was about to strike oil
I guess by the now the flowers in your garden know me
I felt them trying to get at me through the soil

My bare feet felt the cool, soft dirt
Moving up my ankles, but I don't fear you
The thorns began tearing at my shirt
But I didn't even care when they tore clear through

Your garden can't hurt me
Your flowers don't threaten my life
Your garden can't hurt me anymore
Your flowers don't threaten my life
