The Beautiful Things by Eric Wrobbel

Description from YouTube

The ocean
I can understand
Why people pay hundreds of thousands of clams
To live on the sand
I think of the ocean
All calm and blue
But it's got some pretty bad habits, you know,
When a storm comes through

The moon
hangs there in space
And if you like rocks and jumping real high,
It's your kind of place
I think of the moon
And I think of our lives
Both beautiful, bright creations
Where nothing survives

Love was all she knew
And for a goddess she sure slept around
As goddesses do
I think of Venus
The perfect form
But the goddess of love is hard as marble
And just as warm

I think of Beauty
And what Beauty brings
And I think that sometimes it's best to avoid
The Beautiful Things

If you remember the Trini Lopez hit "Lemon Tree" and Jimmy Soul's "If You Wanna Be Happy (For the Rest of Your Life)," you're old! This song is a new twist on the theme, with much more to say and a drier, and wryer, humor.
