I live in Texas my homeland, a desert an untouched ground

I love the sun being my clothes

And I love the sweet, warm breezy blows

With a grouchy cuckoo on my head

No autumn leaves or winter snow

No splashing stream or falling rain

Just an empty Paradise on my own,

With the rocks and stones.

I like to dance in the falling night,

With the cowboys dancing around

That is my homeland, a desert an untouched ground

 

I live in Singapore IKEA my homeland, a concrete desert ground

I love the air-conditioner being my jacket all year round

And I love the halogen light giving me a good shine

With a grocery shopper passer-by

No autumn leaves or winter snow

No splashing stream or falling rain

Just a perfect Paradise within my reign

With my color and little sands deco

I like to sing in my own shadow

With the shopper’s cajoling around,

This is Singapore IKEA my homeland, a concrete desert ground.

    Singapore is not a desert to me =), I see many people with deep love of life and nature. When the rain comes, everything will blossom!

      The Cactus Song describes that, the Cacti were born in different environment, but they still live happily and contented,as cacti are one of the toughest guy in the world!

        Aha, it is about the cactus in Ikea, I misunderstood as describing ourselves. And yes, Cacti are such lovely plant indeed.
