Dropping Shoes

One shoe, two shoes, three shoes drop
and someone’s walking funny
gonna keep raining til it stops
then it may get sunny
no fool like an old fool
being parted with his money
a laughing face in a rear-view mirror
waving see you later, honey.

so many want the world to change
I wish it would stay the same
for a little while
we could finally be happy
if happiness was final
but that’s not its style

The Foreign Legion’s gone domestic
for reasons that aren’t clear
they bully the civilians
and intimidate with fear
but if you get their number
you can throw sand in their gears
laughing at their breakdowns
will help to dry your tears.

so many want the world to change
I wish it would stay the same
for a little while
we could finally be happy
if happiness were final
but that’s not its style.
