The Lyrics

Some say love it is a pitcher
That pours a pleasant stream
Some say love it is a shaver
That leaves goosebumps to preen

Some say love it is a supper
Thanksgiving's special treat
I say love can be a sorrow
If you don't daily weed

It's the heart that's brave for spading
That always loves to prance
It's the dream not shamed for raking
That always makes big plans

It's the one that works their garden
That always seems to bloom
And the soul not 'fraid of trying
That really earns his boon

When the day has been so sunny
And lifes trail has been so fond
And you drink up all it's glory
With good fortune from your brawn

Just remember in the garden
Just beneath the rose adorned
Hides a prick
That with the hands touch
And a squeeze you'll feel "the Thorn"

You've turned the original on its head in a clever, thoughtful way--and looked at love a bit more realistically than pop songwriters usually do. Fives all round!

Very sharp. Now turn Poison on its head: "Every Thorn Has Its Rose."
