lyrics

there are only so many ways
the world can spin
without everybody feeling like they're giving in
to the ultimate power
cuz god forbid
we ever became one with
whatever it was we came from

i’m sipping ice tea and it’s only comforting
because apparently i like little cold leaves
reality is quite the funny thing
but if it were up to me
oh no, i wouldn’t change a thing
oh no, i wouldn’t change a thing

because
i’m thankful for the birds, the bees
the salamanders living in the trees
the silly lovers kissing in the breeze
even though they’re not sure what it all really means

i’m thankful for the birds, the bees
the rambunctous squirrels living in the trees
the silly lovers kissing in the breeze
even though they’re not sure what it all really means

i’m happy, i’m sad
i’m up and i’m glad
that at least my rhymes are rhyming

i’m happy, i’m sad
i’m up and i’m glad
that at least my rhymes are rhyming
and timing is on my side today

oh oh oh

i’m thankful for the birds, the bees
the salamanders living in the trees
the silly lovers kissing in the breeze
even though they’re not sure what it all really means

i’m thankful that we can become one
with whatever it was we came from
whatever it is we come from
oh whatever the heck we come from
oh yea!
