Talk To Your Plants

Now you have got to talk to your plants.
Now this is a lullaby for people who talk to their plants.

Goodnight little house plant asleep on the sill
I'll shut the shades so you don't get a chill
And tomorrow in the mornin' there'll be breakfast for two
We'll have ham and eggs for me and nitrogen for you

Goodnight little house plant, tucked in your clay pot
Make sure you don't catch Huntington's rot
Be careful, little house plant, stay away from them bees
You know they may carry a social disease

Goodnight little house plant, little house plant goodnight
Here's your glass of water; should I leave on a light?
Tomorrow we'll talk of the things that we did
I love you little house plant; who needs women and kids?
