On the first of May
it's a moving day;
spring is here, so blow your job-
throw your job away;

Now the time to trust
to your wonderlast.
In the city's dust you wait
must you wait?
Just you wait;

In a mountain greenery
where God paints the scenary
just two grazy people together.

While you love your lover, let
blues skies be your coverlet.
When it rains we laught at the weather.

And if you're good
I'll search for wood
so you can cook
while i stand looking.

Beans could get no keener re-
ception in a beanery.
Bless our Mountain Greenery home!

In a mountain greenery
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together
How we love sequestering
Where no pests are pestering
No men holds us together

Mosquitoes here
Won't bite you, dear
I'll let them sting
Me on my finger

We could find no cleaner retreat
From life's machinery
Than our mountain greenery
