Grow For Me

I've given you sunshine
I've given you dirt
You've given me nothing
But heartache and hurt
I'm begging you sweetly
I'm down on my knees
Oh please--grow for me
I've given you plant food
And water to sip
I've given you potash
You've given me zip
Oh God, how I mist you
Oh pod, how you tease
Now please--grow for me
I've given you Southern exposure to get you to thrive
I've pinched you back hard,
Like I'm s'posed ta
You're barely alive
I've tried you at levels of moisture
From desert to mud
I've given you grow-lights
And mineral supplements
What do you want from me--blood?

Ouch! (spoken) Damn roses! Damn thorns! Clumsy me. Hey Twooie, look what I did. Hey, ya opened up! I think I know why you opened up. Well, I suppose a few drops couldn't hurt, long as you don't make a habit outta it or anything.

(singing again) I've given you sunlight
I've given you rain
Looks like you're not happy,
'Less I open a vein
I'll give you a few drops
If that'll appease
Now please--oh please--grow for me
