Buddha's Daughter © Steven Beck 2011

Went to bed.
It was late; I fell awake.
Don't know dreams from higher states.
Gonna go down to the woods camp by the lake.
Take some time to meditate.
Wouldn't that be great?

Chop wood, carry water.
Making love with Buddha’s daughter.
She's the finest thing I’ve seen.
Wears orange panties; tastes like tangerine.

Came to the city
Got off the train, felt the rain
Wash the scales away from my eyes,
Penetrate the world's disguise,
To the light that shines inside.
What a grand surprise.

Chop wood, carry water.
Making love with Buddha’s daughter.
She's the finest thing I’ve seen.
Wears orange panties; tastes like tangerine.

They say mountains are mountains,
Streams are streams;
'Til you're in the world
Of Schrodinger’s uncertainty.
Open the box, take a peek, what do you see?
Mountains are mountains; streams are streams.

(What did you expect?)

Went to bed.
It was late; I fell awake.
Don't know dreams from higher states.
Gonna go down to the woods camp by the lake.
Take some time to meditate
Wouldn't that be great.

Chop wood, carry water.
Making love with Buddha’s daughter.
She's the finest thing I’ve seen.
Wears orange panties; tastes like tangerine.

Chop wood, carry water.
Making love with Buddha’s daughter.
She's the finest thing I’ve ever, ever, ever, ever seen.
Wears orange panties, tastes like tangerine.

Chop wood, carry water, making love with Buddha's daughter
Chop wood, carry water, making love with Buddha's daughter
Chop wood, carry water, making love with Buddha's daughter
She's the finest thing I've ever, ever, ever seen.
Wears orange panties; tastes like tangerine.
