In the Garden of Eden

By I. Ron Butterfly

I was talking with some friends over lunch when the topic of drums came up which inevitable leads to Iron Maiden’s In A Gadda De Vida – which reminds me of this episode of the Simpsons.

“In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” is a seventeen-minute, five-second psychedelic rock song by Iron Butterfly, released on their 1968 album In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, occupying the entire second side of the album. The lyrics are simple, and heard only at the beginning and the end.

I wish I could find the extended version where Bart gets punished afterward but I’m lucky to get this much. Enjoy.


In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, honey,

Don’t you know that I love you?

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, baby,

Don’t you know that I’ll always be true?

Oh, won’t you come with me

And take my hand?

Oh, won’t you come with me
And walk this land?

Please take my hand!

  1. I used to listen to that song. Can’t remember when I first heard it though. We only had one rock station at that time and I can’t see them playing it. But, I must have heard it on some radio station sometime in the mid 70s.
