A reminder that you've never been more right about how wrong you are


I was minding my business
Eating and sleeping
At the W, X, Y and Z
When a man came over
Gave me a clover
And asked
Why are you staring with me?

Chewing Boy Scout bubblegum
Or sneaking snacks in the prison yard
I’ll take just the facts

You can keep your blankets of heat waves
Your umbrellas for shade
Your tambourine mule skin
And your wayfaring pose

Cuz the preacher has a sock
He keeps his stash in there
The evidence is clear
But the law don’t even care

He signals with a sound
A sound that is so rare
He’s the last great captain of

He’s perching on a box
He’s licking up his chops
He’s underneath a chair
His vacation spot is there

He ponders at the moon
He’s afraid of silver spoons
He sleeps with one I shut
And walks with John Wayne’s Strut

But you couldn’t be more right
About how wrong you are
Here comes a dog that bites
He claims you broke the law
Without a judge in sight
There’ll be a meeting in the bar
The barkeeps uptight
He doesn’t like your type
