Through word of mouth let it be know
The man who spends his life on a mission, he's legendary
Traveling from coast to coast
He's the contemporary Johnny Appleseed

Now, man, who was talking shit about Johnny anyway?
He's down for the cause, holmes

He's making sure his garden grows
He'll plant a seed in every town he goes
Fertilizing the countryside
Couldn't stop him with insecticide

Making sure the garden grows, yeah, yeah, yeah
He'll water the yard with a agrden hose
And you know he'll be plantin' his seed, yeah, yeah, yeah
Groomin' the backyard, or whackin' a weed

Oh, yes, this Johnny character is just what we're looking for
He's very straight, very gang, very Hispanic
He'll do just fine

When diggin' holes he'll be wearing a glove
He go into the shed, get the shovel, and he shove
He'll plant the seed, makin' sure it's sown
He go into the shed and he start hoein' with the hoe, ho, ho, ho

Makin' sure that the garden grow, yeah, yeah, yeah
He'll water the yard with the garden hose
Groomin' the backyard or whackin' the weed, yeah, yeah, yeah
