You say, “Come to the green fields and blue skies,
they are oh so beautiful and oh so wide.”
But tell me my love…
are there showers in the countryside?
I do not need “a bed of roses
and soft winds humming.”
However I would really appreciate
toilets and indoor plumbing.
I don’t mean to be rude,
but what can I say?
I like warm food.
“Dancing during dawn,
Sleeping together past dusk.”
You’re words make me yawn.
Sorry, if I’m being brusque.
You will find another girl.
Most likely a tramp.
And convince her to go with you,
and together you will happily camp.
I wish you the best
I hope you’re pleased as a field mouse.
As for me, I will be living
content in my air-conditioned house.
