THIS USED TO BE EDEN
© Bob Wright

this used to be Eden
that’s the apple tree I swear
give it a shake
and you’ll find that there
is still a snake in there
this used to be Paradise
as far as the eye could see
paradise was awful nice
the way it used to be

don’t blame the apple
don’t blame the snake
don’t blame the naked lady
for the bite she had to take
you’d have done the same thing
I’da done it too
must be human nature
to wanna taste forbidden fruit

this used to be Eden
yeah it must have been a sight
animals and people
went out dancing every night
this used to be Paradise
as far as the eye could see
paradise was awful nice
the way it used to be

don’t blame the apple
don’t blame the snake
don’t blame the naked lady
for the bite she had to take
you’d have done the same thing
I’da done it too
must be human nature
to wanna taste forbidden fruit

this used to be Eden
that’s the apple tree I swear
give it a shake
and you’ll find that there
is still a snake in there
this used to be Paradise
as far as the eye could see
paradise was awful nice
the way it used to be

don’t blame the apple
don’t blame the snake
don’t blame the naked lady
for the bite she had to take
you’d have done the same thing
I’da done it too
must be human nature
to wanna taste forbidden fruit

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
