Gonna move up to the country
Gonna move up to the country
Put some flowers on it baby

Don't you know this smog's got me down
Don't you know this smog has got me down
Where there ain't no doggone smog around
Well, come here baby
Well, come here baby
Well, you be my woman

Gonna paint, gonna paint, gonna paint, my mailbox blue
Gonna paint my mailbox blue
Paint some trailin' vines and dew
