Pollen the Family
(Sing to the tune of “Those Were the Days,” by Edith and Archie Bunker)

Boy, the way those sprinklers sprayed,
Gardens tended with the best of spades,
Flowers like us had it made,
Those were the days,

And you know where you were then,
Some with pistils and stamen,
Mister, we could use a man like Gregor Mendel again,
Those were the days,

Didn’t need no DDT,
Everybody pulled their weeds,
Gee our old nursery was so green,
Those were the days.
