Lyrics

Hey ho, yipee ki-yay. Hey ho, yipee ki - yay.
Hey ho, yipee ki-yay.
Hey ho, yipee ki - yay, ki - yay.
Here with the trees, in the park, on his knees,
On the knees, with the dirty dirt
Grass and leaves.
He a nature nature boy,
With the ants and worms,
In the city city park, he cause concern.
Hey ho, yipee ki-yay. Hey ho, yipee ki - yay.
Hey ho, yipee ki-yay.
Hey ho, yipee ki - yay, ki - yay.
Some passers-by double take with the eyes
Take a quick second look at the nature guy.
Some curious folks are craning their necks
Reaching for the smart-phones,
Sharing pics and texts
Hey ho, yipee ki-yay. Hey ho, yipee ki - yay.
Hey ho, yipee ki-yay.
Hey ho, yipee ki - yay, ki - yay.
Guy in the park, he a nature boy,
A friend to the ant and fern!
Guy in the neighborhood city park,
His frolicking caus-ing concern!
In the grass and the leaves,
He was on his knees;
Some sure he was casting a spell.
Cause a flower bed grew up before their eyes
From the ground all around
Where the nature boy knelt.
His hands in the earth with a grinning bliss,
Creating a spectacle not to miss.
The police drove up in response to the calls
He was hands in the dirt with a smile…
In the o’natural. Whoa!!
Guy in the park, he a nature boy,
A friend to the ant and fern!
Guy in the neighborhood city park,
His frolicking caus-ing concern!
