    Herbs of Healing

    The lands are alive, with the herbs of healing
    With blooms they have grown, for a thousand years
    These herbs fill our hearts with the zing of shielding
    Our herbs want to bloom every heal, they bring

    Our herbs want to grow like the sprigs of plants that rise from the earth to the breeze
    Our herbs want to vie for our health that flies, from our birth, onwardly
    To feed like a prize as it strives and blooms over soil, on its way
    To heal through our days, 'herbidaceous!' it wants us to say

    We eat the herbs when our hearts are lonely
    We know we will feed, with delicious rapport
    Our souls will be blessed, with the herbs of healing
    And we will heal, once more.

    The melody is :heehee: well, you know..

      I recognise the melody! It was recorded by Andrews and the Liver Salts! :lunapic 130165696578242 5:

      It did not sell well though! I remember going into the record store and asking how many copies had been sold. The answer was "Nun yesterday and nun today either!":whistle:

                    I remember it. :dbgrtmb:

                    Of course, someone had to produce a version that couldn't be shown on TV - or here. :whistle:

                    You'd have to Google Magic Roundabout (mucky version). It's not offensive but not PC.
