Dirt

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Tina Campbell of Mary Mary told SoulTracks that the message of this song is "that you need a little dirt to grow." She explained: "The funny thing about a beautiful garden is that it's wonderful when you look at it, but none of those plants can grow if they don't live in dirt. It's grimy, there are worms in it, rocks, sticks, but that's what's required; with a little dirt and rain, you become beautiful."
