Joyous Noise

You can hear it in the breeze
Blowing through the leaves up in all the trees
You can hear it in the beep, beep, beep 
Of the neighbors car, he forgot his keys
 
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
 
You can hear it in the birds
Chirping good morning at the crack of dawn
You can hear it in the drone of the engines
As everyone is out mowing their lawn
  
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
 
You can hear it in a group of kids
With their out of tune violins
You can hear it in the tsk, tsk, tsk
Of the stuffy ladies who are judging my sins
 
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
 
You can hear it in the baby’s cry
There’s something that she really needs
You can hear it in a contended sigh
It’s annoying but you know he’ll never leave
 
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
It’s a joyous noise on a busted banjo
 
I’m so grateful for all these sounds
Because they remind me
I don’t have to be perfect
To find some beauty
