Nature in the City

Lyrics by Billy B. Brennan 

 

Great Big trees along the street 

little green weeds poking through concrete 

Where the rivers roll and meet 

all that soil under the street 

 

Watch it rise, Watch it fall 

feel it blow, listen to it call 

 

Flower gardens in the spring 

little honey bee yes, doing her thing 

birds arrive just have to sing

 wind makes trees sway and swing 

 

green leaves, breathe in out 

green leaves muffle that sound 

green leaves, breathe in out 

green leaves throwing shade down 

green leaves, breathe in out 

green leaves soaking up sunshine 

 

the rolling fog’s misty vapors 

the Whipping winds between skyscrapers 

birds make nests out of newspapers 

people & critters being neighbors 

in New York you hear blue jays 

Red wing black birds in LA 

in the park, hear the owl 

in some cities, coyotes howl.

Nature, Nature

That’s Nature in the City!
