The Lyrics

If I Had A Hammock,
I'd swing there in the morning
I'd swing there in the evening
Right in the back yard
I'd sway with the breezes
I'd sway like the sea does
Just relaxing out there between
A chestnut and a maple
Right in the back yard

If I had a grill,
I'd cookout in the morning
I'd cookout in the evening
Right in the back yard
I'd invite my neighbors
I'd invite some good friends
We'd just hang out there
And share the food and conversation
Right in the back yard

If I had the time
I'd spend it in the morning
I'd spend it in the evening
Right in the back yard
I'd spend it sharing,
And I'd spend it caring
I'd spend it there among
Some good friends and my neighbors
Right in the back yard

Well, I got a hammock,
And I got a grill
And I got the time to spend
Right in the back yard
It's a hammock for swinging
It's a grill for cooking
It's a time for spending here with
My good friends and my neighbors
Right in the back yard.

Perfect title, excellent parody. One of my old college roommates used to sing this one all the time when I needed to borrow a hammer. 555

Excellent sentiment and with 2 inches of snow presently on the ground I look foward to summertime when I can cook-out and not freeze my butt off.
