MAD about Lovely Missile’s Garden by Tim Price

Tim sings “Lovely Missile’s Garden” inspired by a sketch my father drew many years ago.

I am very proud to share it here with a note from my father who loved it [too!] and was also happy that Tim remembers. Memories are our teachers.
We both love everything about this post: Lyrics, song, the history, the very relevant and brilliant photo, the kindness but most of all, Tim!

Thank you, Tim!

Lovely Missile’s Garden

Parody Lyrics: Timothy Price
Inspiration: Anakreon Kanavakis
Music: The Beatles

I like to be, watering bombs you see
In a lovely missile’s garden in the shade
I know I’d win, because I’ve been
Watering missile’s garden in the shade
I have no friends who want to be
Watering my missile’s garden with me

I like to be, watering bombs you see
In a lovely missile’s garden in the shade

It would be warm (Oh so warm), from the storm (From the storm)
A little blast-a-way and big shock wave (Boom! Boom!)
No resting our heads (Our heads), we’d all be dead (Oh no!)
A missile garden will make our grave (So sad!)
We would not sing or dance around
Annihilation would be profound

I like to be, watering bombs you see
In a lovely missile’s garden in the shade

Without a doubt (No doubt!) we’d be blown about (All about!)
Echoes fall beneath the blasting waves (So many waves!)
There’s no more Joy (Killed Joy), no girls or boys (No girls or boys?)
Knowing there’s nothing left but empty space (So much space).
No happiness for you and me
No one left to tell us what to do

I like to be, watering bombs you see
In a lovely missile’s garden in the shade

I like to be, watering bombs you see
In a lovely missile’s garden in the shade

  1. I think we have put together a nice, entertaining history lesson.

      1. You and your dad were the inspiration. None of the parts on my end would have happened if you hadn’t posted your dad’s wonderful sketch. You two are major elements of the post. The post ended up being an impromptu collaboration. Which I think is wonderful. It’s a like guerrilla art, music and history.
