She’s Electric Wind

SHE'S ELECTRIC WIND

SHE'S REAL COSMIC

SHE AIN'T TRIPPIN' OFF NONE OF YOUR SHIT

HER STEPS ARE LINED WITH WINGS AND HORNS

SHE ROCKS NO BOATS

SHE ROCKS ALL BOATS

SHE CLIMBS

SHE FLIES

SHE RIDES

SHE DIVES

 

DID YOU SEE HER EYES

DID YOU SEE THOSE EYES

THOSE EYES SPEAK OF A THOUSAND LIVES

THOSES EYES MESMERIZE

MESMERIZE ALL OF OUR EYES

 

SHE ROCKS NO BOATS

SHE ROCKS ALL BOATS

SHE CLIMBS

Rocks In My Bag

I'VE GOT ROCKS IN MY BAGS, THAT'S OKAY

I'VE GOT ROCKS IN MY BAG, THAT'S THE WAY THAT I LIKE IT

I'VE GOT SAND IN MY TEETH, THAT'S THE WAY THAT I LIKE IT

 

COME WALK WITH ME,

TAKE A WALK WITH ME, COME WALK WITH ME

COME AND SEE IF YOU LIKE IT

 

I'VE GOT HOLES IN MY POCKETS

SO I SEWED THEM TO STOP IT

 

I'VE GOT DREAMS TO DREAM

THERE AIN'T NO STOPPING ME

 

I'VE GOT PEOPLE TO SEE

THE MAIN ONE BEING ME

 

I'VE GOT PEOPLE TO SEE

THE MAIN ONE BEING ME

 

I'VE GOT ROCKS IN MY BAG, THAT'S OKAY

I'VE GOT ROCKS IN MY BAG, THAT'S THE WAY THAT I LIKE IT

TWIGS IN MY HAIR

FEATHERS IN MY EARS

AND I SEE YOU OVER THERE

 

BUT, I'VE GOT ROCKS IN MY BAG, THAT'S OKAY

I'VE GOT ROCKS IN MY BAG, YOU SEE I'M SO STEADY

 

The Yellow Brick Road

THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

IS NOT PAVED IN GOLD

THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

IS COLD, HARD STONE

 

YOU BETTER GET YOUR WALKING BOOTS

TAKE UP YOUR WALKING PAPERS

AND GATHER UP YOUR SOUL

ON THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

 

IT’S A COLD, LONG ROAD

IT’S A LONG, HARD ROAD

IT’S THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

IT AIN’T MADE OF GOLD

 

YOU BETTER GET YOUR WALKING BOOTS

TAKE UP YOUR WALKING PAPERS

AND GATHER UP YOUR SOUL

ON THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

 

IT’S MADE OF COLD, HARD STONE

COLD, HARD STONE

IT’S THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

IT’S NOT PAVED IN GOLD

 

YOU BETTER GET YOUR WALKING BOOTS

TAKE UP YOUR WALKING PAPERS

AND GATHER UP YOUR SOUL

IT’S A COLD, COLD ROAD

IT’S A LONG, HARD ROAD

IT’S THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

YOU BETTER GUARD YOUR SOUL

 

ON THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

YELLOW BRICK ROAD
