You leaped out from behind a tree.
You leaped out from behind a tree.
You little bundle of joy.
You are the sun shining in me.
You jumped out right on top of me
And held me close with both your hands
And we lay out on the hillside
In this green and pleasant land.

I love everything about you.
Your gentle smiling spirit.
I dress it with my love,
With my body I undress it.
You came up right behind me
And took me with both your hands
And we lay out on the hillside
In this green and pleasant land.

When we came inside I switched on the television
A news article about rising tides, floods in the Mississippi.
I must admit I was scared for a second, but I don’t really know why.
The only thing that could destroy me now is if you were taken from my side.
But the floods can’t take you forever.
What do you take me for, a fool?
It can take us both as lovers
Or it can’t take you at all!
I said I love you truly and now
Why would I have lied?
The only thing that could destroy me now is if you were taken from my side.

And so I hold you to my chest
And pray that that day will never arrive.
I keep you there so that you can’t see
A tear escaping from my eye.
You are the sun shining upon me,
Sometimes so bright that I can’t quite stand
To be lying here beside you,
In this green and pleasant land.
