The Lyrics

Don't know if I owe this to Merry & Pippin or even Alvin Rhodes, but I woke up with these lyrics running through my brain...
Don't make a sound, you've just gotta stay quiet
Do you find her pretty?
Cause someone just might
Do you hear hissing?
Or some other kissing vermin?

Adam wants to go fishing
But that Eve is still wishing
He'd do something right, get lucky tonight
Walking in a garden with a man

Now the snake thinks it's absurd
That their fun should be deferred
He makes things go wrong, 'cause Adam ain't strong
Walking in a garden with a man

Can't a fellow simply stick to God's plan?
He pretends that one fruit won't be missed
Eve says, "lets not tarry any more man"
And how can you think straight once you've been kissed?

Later on they'll be hiding
Out of Eden they're sliding
The good girls all know that bad girls will show
Walking in a garden with a man

Also well done! How about them apples?

I'm having major issues with the first stanza? Is it spoken or something? What part of the original song does it correspond to?
Tim Mayfield - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Over the ground lies a mantel of white
A heaven of diamonds
Shine down through the night
Two hearts are thrilling
In spite of the chilling weather

It's the prelude part.

Well, if it does have anything to do with M&P I am sure we are flattered, Tim. Good one!

Love them Biblical parodies!

I'm not familiar with the prelude either (never heard that part in any recording of the OS), but you've paced and rhymed this pretty well. 5-5-5.

Thanks for the votes and comments. All I can say is that my time spent in the various choirs and vocal groups has broadened my knowledge of the actual lyrics. There are a number of songs where the prelude is not normally used. 'White Christmas' is another one...
