  1. Clingin Vine

From the recording Equality Road Double CD

To all the clinging vines trying to get untangled

Clingin’ Vine

1. If I'm a “clinging vine”, then you're a pumpkin.
And while we're on the subject, I'd like to tell you somethin’ you should know...
We'll you've gotten fat and sassy off that vine
In fact, you might just call it your lifeline!
If you'd look down at your feet, it would show
That without that clingin’ vine the fruit won't grow.
2. And if I'm a clinging vine, you're a zucchini!
And while we're on the subject, look close, you may not see me here again
A zucchini sits and ripens on its hill
You’re stuck there, but a vine grows where it will
If you'd prefer to be cut off, that's fine
It's easy to reroute a clingin vine.
3. And if I'm a clinging vine, then you're a melon
And while we're on the subject, it's time that I was tellin’ you goodbye.
You're too puffed up to see another's worth
I'll take my roots and twine around the earth
Good luck out on your own - I think you'll find
You’ll wish that you still had that clingin vine....
Good luck out on your own - I think you'll find
You’ll wish that you still had your clingin vine....too bad!
