Story

After a day of mowing the lawn in the autumn in Colorado, in which grasshoppers were dancing all over the place, Steve composed this song for his friends to sing with him.

Lyrics

The sky was blue (the sky was blue)

The grass was long and green (the grass was long and green)

It was the prettiest day (it was the prettiest day)

I think I've ever seen (I think I've ever seen)

I get out my mower (I get out my mower)

Pull the cord and turn it on (pull the cord and turn it on)

The noise it makes (the noise it makes)

Has 'em hoppin' and boppin' all over the lawn:

 

My mower's makin' music for the grasshoppers to dance

My mower's makin' music for the grasshoppers to dance

My mower's makin' music, My mower's makin' music

My mower's makin' music for the grasshoppers to dance

 

The mama grasshopper said (the mama grasshopper said)

Where'd my babies go? (where'd my babies go?)

I thought I saw them hopping here (I thought I saw them hopping here)

Just a moment ago (just a moment ago)

I guess they're hiding (I guess they're hiding)

Deep in the grass (deep in the grass)

They're waitin' for the next time (they're waitin' for the next time)

The mower comes to pass. 

 

The sky was black (the sky was black)

But the moon was bright (but the moon was bright)

I couldn't see anything (I couldn't see anything)

Movin' tonight (movin' tonight)

Where are the grasshoppers?  (Where are the grasshoppers?)

Asleep it seems (asleep it seems)

But I bet they're hoppin' (but I bet they're hoppin')

in their grasshopper dreams!
