This song is too real for me. After 10 years of relentless touring, as well as parenting and everything else I feel I really need to listen to the lyrics of this song. A good message for everyone to remember to stop and smell the flowers.


Every day we’re all so busy
Sometimes it makes me dizzy
Mom and dad have work, we have school
Running from piano to the swimming pool

We’ve got to stop! Smell the flowers
Just for a minute now and smell the flowers
Life’s so full. You only get so many hours
C’mon mom and dad let’s stop to smell the flowers

Up in the morning, eat and brush your hair
Gotta get dressed and dash down the stairs
Off to school, to work, let’s go go go!
It’s almost like we’re caught in a tornado

Even on the weekends just can’t stop
Just running until we drop
Get in the car, we’re late for soccer
I’m a hard rocker, fast talker, speed walker, knickerbocker

Sometimes I think I need a day off
A whole day when I can goof off
Slow down a bit, have a holiday
Chill, read a book, maybe play some reggae
