QuotesEdit

Aware, A Rock Music Research Journal: “The gong sounds in the song... were made by two lampshades struck with a pen.”

Andy: “Dave's actually playing the little tune over the slight return [on ‘The Mole from the Ministry’], and it's the main riff behind ‘Life is good in the Greenhouse’ on Go 2 being played on a Zippy Zither, about £7, so there's a bit of cross fertilization for you!”[1]

LyricsEdit

Everybody lives somewhere

Mud hut or igloo

But what I got is the hottest spot

And it's away from you

Everybody says something

Truth lies or both

But dear all your hot air

Don't encourage my growth


Do you wonder why I look so fresh

Do you wonder why I look so tall

Do you wonder why you'll never ever move me

Life is good in the greenhouse

Rather be a plant than be your Mickey Mouse

Life is good in the greenhouse


Everybody eats something

But you won't eat me

You won't get me on your plate

Or have me over for tea

Everybody lives somewhere

Mud hut or igloo

But what I got is the hottest spot

And it's away from you
