Lyrics

April Flowers

Randy Newman singin’ about Louisiana About a levee they let the water through Why people do the things they do Suspicions are high
Seasons go by

From the docks up to the highest rocks He's singin to me
And you

Suddenly it occurs to me I might have a destiny
A couple of steps
To the plate and from the bar

I've got no illusions but what is necessary
I drive a dog round in my car
We'd rather be riding than almost anything If he'd pick a direction
We'd probably go far

It’s April flowers all over Texas
The winter is over and my taxes filed Crooked reasons and straight answers
I might get out while the weather is mild

Heroes and apathy
Fill the image nation
Springs are both many
And they are few

Dominoes fallen long ago
Are the only real beginnings
You’ve got your days
And they’ve got you

It’s April flowers all over Texas
The winter is over and my taxes filed Crooked reasons and straight answers
I might get out while the weather is mild

It’s April flowers all over Texas
Indian paintbrush and bluebonnets wild With crooked reasons and straight answers I might get out while the weather’s mild
