WHEN THE GREEN GITS BACK IN THE
TREES

IN Spring, when the green gits back in the trees,
        And the sun comes out and stays,
And yer boots pulls on with a good tight squeeze,
        And you think of yer bare-foot days;
When you ort to work and you want to not,
        And you and yer wife agrees
It’s time to spade up the garden-lot,
        When the green gits back in the trees
            Well! work is the least o’ my idees
            When the green, you know, gits back in the trees!
