lyrics

Cmaj7 Bm7 E
G- Whad'ya do about occupying the minds of the children
How do you keep them interested?

Whad'ya do about keeping calm and remaining centred
In times of great uncertainty

Em Am
After you've cleaned the house again
Em Bm
After you've played all the games
Em Am
After you've eaten pasta for third time- how about learning another recipe
Em D D7
How do you keep yourself sane?

G B7
Water-yer-fucking plants
Don't let them wilt – they symbolise regrowth
Regeneration
C/D
they remind us that life goes on so

G B7
Water yer fuckin plants
Em Am7
If you have too many – its okay let em die
Keep a few for yourself
D/C
What are you doing letting your plants wilt?

(Rap:)
Y- W w w water yer plants
In lieu of answers
Water yer plants
Oh yeah my fucken stance is
Water yer plants
All yer cacti and yer pansies
Wet em and wet em
Don’t forget em make sure you’ve fed em let em
Grow____
Let em grow____
Don’t let the fuckers go

Because love is just a leaf away
One small leaf for mankind
Is enough nuf nuff nuf nuff nuff (echo to fade)
(drum fill)

Cmaj7 Bm7 E

S- Shaking his fist from his window a middle aged man rants
Open your eyes, you fools! you fools!
G- (little chorus motif) Water your fucking plants!
Y- W w w water your plants

S- There he is on the corner
Shaking a sign and doing a dance
Oh that’s the “water your fucking plants” guy
S-(motif again:)

Em
water your fucking plants guy
Am
In your rags and top hat
Em Bm7
Take me on a magical journey through the streets of our city,
Show me the hidden byways of the town i thought i knew
Challenge my assumptions,

G Bm
“Water your fucking plants guy”
Em
You live so free and simple
Am7
Where do you sleep?
C/D
Do you even own a plant?

G Bm
“Water your fucking plants guy”
What terrible tragedy hides in your past?
C/D
What did you used to be?r
The hat sort of suggests
you were in entertainment once

(rap)
Y: W w w water your plants
Oh yeah
Am I right that we mean
Wetting your Greenery?

It’s a suggestion
As opposed to the question
That want s to know__ what your plans are I.E.

What W. H. A. T
Are
Your
fucking
Plans
P. L. A. N. S.
With NO ‘T’
Do you see?

I think I may have misheard it
Because the way that you word it
Sounds like it could have been either
I don’t want to be the
Spanner who says__ let’s take a breather
Yes siree
I hope that you know
That I’m good to go
I can rap passionately ___
from any seed that you sow sow sow sow
