Lyrics

Rock Song

Written By: Mike Lombardo Trio

I’ve seen better mud than this
that brontosaurus print was pretty hard to miss
and if I wait, eventually, it might come around again
and I’m gonna be right here

now I remember from way back
a smokin’ hot piece of ash*
from upper pangea
and if I wait, eventually, it might come around again
and I’m gonna be right here

She didn’t wait till the oceans left
but she should have waited

After the way that I’ve been shown
there’s no other way that what I know
and after the waves come and go
I’ll be right here on my own

I’ve seen better stars than this
back when Orion’s Belt was just a little to the left
and if I wait, eventually, it might come around again
and I’m gonna be right here
