Looking Out My Back Door

CCR sang the song looking out my back door in the 60's.  The chorus went something like this:

Doo, doo, doo, Looking out my back door. 
There's a giant doing cartwheels, 
A statue wearing high heels. 
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn. 
A dinosaur Victrola listening to Buck Owens.

Now when I look out my back door I may see elk, deer, bear, coyotes, bobcat and a host of different animals.  When I worked in Orlando we didn't have a back door but we did have an abundance of side windows.  We would see people making out in the parking lot, a flasher, streaker, car thieves and a host of other crazy and illegal things.  We had one persistent flasher who liked to target our secretaries. He would stand out there in his trench coat until he had a good audience and then - throw that coat open and we could hear the girls cheering him on.  That guy could really run because we used to chase him for the sake of getting our work done.   We never even got close.  The guy should have been in the Olympics he was so fast. 
I would rather have animals of the four legged variety out my back door than the human type.  So when I go around singing the chorus  " Doo, doo, doo, Looking out my back door...", I'm just remembering Orlando and how much better it is now.
