Listen to Mayhem by Imelda May

The satsumas were strewn across tangerine dreams
I assume they were there to declare fruity reap
Mangos danced tangos in hearty fandango
So far from home yet only halfway from canto
The cantaloupes sloped to provoke finger limes
With clementines the hosts with most to prize

Wildflowers showered affectionate petals
That kissed to tell tall tales of petulent nettles
Ladybugs hugged the tall grass as they passed over cloverleaves briefly to please
The centipedes eventually remembered where they’re meant to be
Suggestively the millipedes agreed
Dragonflies romanticizing termites teasing
Magnifying
Analyzing
Gratifying seedlings

Mother nature nurtured every wildflower foreseen
Empowered planet earth to intervene
And while her methods may have been a little bit extreme
She certainly knew how to throw a party

Drunken monkeys hung from trees
Poking fun at summer breeze
Bums on seats a stunning feat
With two left feet and tongue in cheek

The camel with the hammer toe made no attempt to hide
The razzle known to dazzle in its independent stride
Baffled were the badgers
While the beavers deemed it heedless to be seen to go for broke while gophers choked on broken flint
Provoking sloths to moan like goths
And go extinct
The ostriches were furious
And curiously keen to go full emu on the lemurs while the harmless llamas leaned

Wildflowers showered affectionate petals
That kissed to tell tall tales of petulent nettles
The centipedes eventually remembered where they’re meant to be
Suggestively the millipedes agreed
Dragonflies romanticizing termites teasing
Magnifying
Analyzing
Gratifying seedlings

Mother nature nurtured every wildflower foreseen
Empowered planet earth to intervene
And while her methods may have been a little bit extreme
She certainly knew how to throw a party
