I Gotta Mow Again

I decided to do something fun and dedicate this song I wrote to the tune of “On The Road Again” by Willie Nelson, to my husband.

Deran is a good guy, and though he really hates yard work, he gets out there and does it.  He and I, both being firstborns and mighty stubborn-to-boot, butt-heads periodically, but I am thankful God placed him in my life.  We have had a rocky road to hoe, but after almost nine years, I am blessed to say that Deran is now the husband I thought he would be when I married him.

I also thank God for His grace and mercy on our marriage.

Well, here is the song.  Enjoy Deran!

I Gotta Mow Again

I Gotta mow again

I can’t believe it, I gotta mow again

I rather be boating on the lake, oh so serene

Yet I can’t because I have to mow again

I Gotta mow again

I can’t believe it, I gotta mow again

I want to relax and watch TV in my den

But my yard would look awful then

I Gotta mow again

I can’t believe it, I gotta mow again

I’d rather be traveling the world on a whim

And let that grass grow past my shin

I Gotta mow again

I can’t believe it, I gotta mow again

I want to take the summer off but to my chagrin

Neighbors’ complaints I’ll take on the chin

I Gotta mow again

I can’t believe it, I gotta mow again

Maybe I’ll skip it off for another day wherein

No, I must forget that and just begin

I Gotta mow again

Wasn’t it just yesterday I mowed again

It really doesn’t matter just how long it’s been

A reason  I can’t wait for winter to begin

I can’t believe it now I gotta mow again

  3. Oh boy, this could be my hubby’s theme song too since the grass is growing like crazy with all the rain we’ve had this summer. But he grew up as a city boy and didn’t even have grass, so he actually ENJOYS mowing and being outdoors working in the yard. Good thing — we have 2 1/4 acres of ‘yard.’ :-O

    Thanks for the tune stuck in my brain, lol. I make up parodies too, it’s better than therapy!

  5. Very clever! My husband and I are also first borns and lawn work is always an issue! Next time my husband complains will have to show him your tune.
