lyrics

This could be a fine apple tree
Coming up in your garden
Beautiful leaves but the fruit won’t taste sweet
If you try to give it too much water
Too much water too much water
Sometimes no is the kindest thing you can say

When Noah complained to his wife about the rain
she said “tell God to bring his own umbrella”
Our sheep can float but we’re gonna need a boat.
Or we'll end up lambs gone to the slaughter
Too much water too much water

So you wanna do the right thing but even more
You don’t want to do the wrong thing
And you got a boat and you want it to float
She wants to know does the castle come with a moat?
And what about a mink coat
It's not that's she's greedy but she does get needy
And when the faucet starts flowing baby baby baby
Too much water too much water
Sometimes no is the kindest thing you can say
