Fruits of My Labor
Baby, see how I been living Velvet curtains on the windows too Keep the bright and unforgiving Light from shining through Baby, I remember all the things we did When we slept together In the blue behind your eyelids Baby, sweet baby Traced your scent through the gloom 'Til I found these purple flowers I was spent, I was soon smelling you for hours Lavender, lotus blossoms too Water the dirt, flowers last for you Baby, sweet baby Tangerines and persimmons And sugarcane Grapes and honeydew melon Enough fit for a queen Lemon trees don't make a sound 'Til branches bend and fruit falls to the ground Baby, sweet baby Come to my world and witness The way things have changed 'Cause I finally did it, baby I got out of La Grange Got in my Mercury and drove out west Pedal to the metal and my luck to the test Baby, sweet baby I been tryin' to enjoy all the fruits of my labor I been cryin' for you boy but truth is my savior Baby, sweet baby if it's all the same Take the glory any day over the fame Baby, sweet baby
