Wild Strawberries

 

Mama, Mama, Mama -- please don't go

Won't you wait just a few more minutes before you mow

Take a peek out the window, you won't have to look too hard

To see something spectacular sprouting in our yard

 

Wild (Wild, Wild) Strawberries (Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries)

Wild (Wild, Wild) Strawberries (Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries)

Wild (Wild, Wild) Strawberries (Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries)

There is a lot I've not learned yet, because I am a child

But I can tell you one thing sure: those berries, they're growing wild!

 

Papa, Papa, Papa -- please, don't pass

Peruse the minor miracle growing in the grass

If you say that it's okay and will not make me sick

I thought that we could go outside and pick and pick and pick

Those

Wild (Wild, Wild) Strawberries (Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries)

 

Wild (Wild, Wild) Strawberries (Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries)

Wild (Wild, Wild) Strawberries (Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries)

I wonder what they taste like . . . do you think they're strong or mild?

Either way, I've got to say, those berries? They're pretty wild!

 

Later on, we could make some jam

I can see in your eye you're as intrigued as I am

 

By those

Wild Strawberries

Wild Strawberries

Wild Strawberries

To see those spots of red among the green just makes me smile

Don't dally, now, 'cause you, me and those berries (those berries, those berries) --

It's going to be wild!
