LyricsEdit

The world's overrun with new shades of green
And the dandelions come up like recurring dreams
And the swallows give up their fragile little songs
To the new world

And I know you're only watching out for yourself
And I know I'm not to take it real personal-like
And I know you only want what's best for everybody
I know you only want what's best for everybody

But you better be nice or the Easter Bunny's
Gonna strike your name out of the
Little red book with the silver hinges on it
That he carries

They've implemented a new system on the exhaust lines of the buses
And now the air is fresh and sweet and clean when they pass by
And the bright sun shines down on our fair city
And young cats play on people's front lawns

And the time is coming
And the time is coming
And I can feel the time coming
And I know that you can feel the time coming yourself

And the Easter Bunny's coming
And God knows I'd hate for you to miss it

It's gonna be so nice
When the Easter Bunny comes
It's gonna be so nice
When the Easter Bunny comes
It's gonna be so nice
When the Easter Bunny comes
It's gonna be so nice
When the Easter Bunny comes
