I stepped on a ground wasp nest I don't know how many times I got stung Now I'm itchy and swollen, I'll take a deep breath And inhale some bugs in my lungs I'm going to throw my shovel as hard as I can I'm going to throw my shovel as hard as I can Going to wind up and let it fly from my hand I'm going to throw my shovel as hard as I can I don't want to plant this rocky block or climb this hill one more time the ground we're on should be 18 cents but we're only getting a dime and I finally finished that piece it was mostly rocks with no cream a rookie says, "oops, I left a hole in the back" so I take a deep breath and I scream and I'll...
It's time to hit the road for planting season don't you know I won't be going tree planting again* I don't want to go but I've got to make some dough * Slam them in for 13 cents, while my body's broke & bent * 'Cause living in a tent costs a lot more than my rent * My sleeping bag is soaked and the drying-tent's a joke * I'm fresh out of smokes & the foreman's dealin' coke * (chorus) All the good food is gone so it's vegan slop at dawn * Some hippy guy named John always plays the same fucking song


Inspired by the 8 seasons of tree planting I did. The good times and the horribly awful times.
