Lyrics:

I wanna write a desert sonnet. I wanna dance a desert dance.
I got a bee in my bonnet. I got ants in my pants.

I wanna throw a desert boulder. I wanna eat a desert pie.
There's a bluebird on my shoulder. There's a twinkle in my eye, yeah my eye.

Yeah I, I like cacti.
In fact, I think I love them.
Big sky smiling above them, grinning ear to ear.
I really love it here.

Yeah, there's a bee in my bonnet. And she sits there in the shade
Of my brim and she's in there 'cause I'm drinking lemonade.

And I'm walking through the desert with my very skinny friend.
And I'm back, it's a fact, to the place I recommend.
I recommend the desert because

I, I like cacti.
As a matter of fact, I really love them.
Big sky smiling above them, grinning ear to ear to ear.
I really love it here.

Cactus flower blooming bright,
Blooming in the desert night.
Your sharp spines like hornets' stings.
Don't worry. I won't count your rings.

What attracts us about a cactus? I think it keeps us thinking warm.
All that sand gets soaked in a desert thunderstorm.

Yeah, I like the salamander and the burros and the weevils too.
But, Prickly Pear, there ain't nothing that compares to you.
You're the best. I guess it's just that

I, I like cacti.
In fact, I think I love them.
Big sky smiling above them, grinning ear to ear to ear.
I really love it here.
