Yellow like gold, but spreading like mold,
And it’s out there just waiting for me;
Important I know, honey and flowers to grow,
some yellow like gold; but, man, it’s spreading like mold!
Causes red eyes that burn, running nose to blow,
— long pauses when I have to sneeze;
Yellow like gold, but spreading like mold,
And it’s out there just waiting for me.
