lyrics

Today is not a day for car horns beeping
It’s spring time, and spring peepers are peeping
And today is not a day for whistles and bands
No, today I’m gonna put my ear to conch shells, yeah

I’m gonna find a quiet place where
Things move at a quiet pace
And I can listen to the little sounds
That put that smile back on my face
I’m gonna find a quiet place where
Things move at a quiet pace
And that’ll put that smile back on my face

And I don’t want to hear those motorcycle rumbles
I don’t like bee stings, but I love the sound of bumbles
And I also love the sound of a far off train
But today I prefer the pitter patter of the rain, yeah

Chorus

And I don’t want to hear construction trucks, no
Well, I know they’re cool, but so are quacking ducks
And I love the sound people talking in a crowd
But you know the sound when a squirrel’s trying to eat a walnut
It’s like, scratch scratch scratch
Scratch scratch scratch
Oh yeah, yup
Yeah, I want to hear that sound, and it’s not that loud

Chorus
