lazy lizard (dreaming)

the old blue lizard
that lazy blue lizard
has got nothing to do
but to
sleep in the drain

he knows I’m looking
but he’s not moving
that old blue lizard
has just got time
to dream

and he dreams the sunshine
he dreams the soft breeze
but he won’t be raising
his head up
to see

because it’s only weather
it’s the same old weather
the summer is shining
and he is warm
enough
where he is
