Lyrics

Author: Barry Gee

Title: Weeds look just like Flowers.

We had a dog called Shep who always slept

On the floor beside of me

He had brownish hair and I didn't care

'bout his lack of pedigree

We had about a dozen cats

Of every size and kind

They helped to keep away the rats

Who would have robbed us blind

We had vitals on the table

Several times a day

And our backyard was a mountain top

That's where we used to play

I didn't know that we were poor

'til the day that I was told

'cus the weeds look just like flowers

When you're only five years old.





Much later on I got wed

And we raised a family

We grew enough to keep us  fed

And we lived in harmony

Evenings spent upon the porch

When everybody smiled

We sang the songs that I'd been taught

When I was just a child

With my woman shining like the moon

And the kids like little stars

We didn't have a lot of things

But what we had was ours

And I didn't feel that we were poor

With our blessings from above

'cus the weeds look just like flowers

When you're with the ones you love

No I didn't feel that we were poor

With our blessings from above

And the weeds still look like flowers

When you're with the ones you love.
