about

I love gardening: making beds, planting seed, growing plants, watering them, tasting the results, feeling better for it...its a creative process not unlike making music. Doing green stuff helps you get rid of the blues...try it.

lyrics

The Community Garden Greens © Roo Friend APRA 2017

Most people sing the blues
But I’m telling you I got the greens
Most people sing the blues
But I’m telling you I got the greens
Cos blues is about a bad time
But my green is a beautiful dream

My baby didn’t leave me
She didn’t even catch a train
My baby didn’t leave me
She didn’t go to Buranda Station and catch a train
My baby’s in the garden today
Picking potatoes and beans again

I got the greens so bad
Do you know what I mean, feeling green?
I got the greens so bad
Do you know what I mean, feeling green?
I planted a seed the other day
And now its beautiful head can be seen

Oh blue is a seductive feeling
But green is a positive cure for blue
Oh yeah blue is a seductive feeling
But green is a poitive cure for blue

Well let me tell you people
I got the community garden greens
Well let me tell you people
I got the community garden greens
I cooked em up in a stir fry
And they were the nicest I’ve ever eaten
