"You Can't Fool Me, Dennis" as written by Henry William Harrison and William Rees....
There was a boy who ran away
From what he didn't know
Who he wouldn't say
He just had to go

Something had snapped inside of him
As he fled from a nameless threat
Crowds of people stand aloof in Waterloo

There's no sunset
Sunset

And when he gets to this mythic place
The streets are dirty dark and deep
There is no rest
There is no place to lay a head

To sleep
To sleep
To sleep
To sleep

There was a boy who ran away
From what he didn't know
Who he wouldn't say
He just had to go
Go!

Went to so much trouble
To banish you from my sight
He said that you're an accident
An accident about which

I should forget
Forget
Forget
Forget

And now that the wheel has gone around
He's back where he belongs
And he knows there is no hope
Only

Solice! (In the words of this song)
Solice! (In the words of this song)
Solice! (In the words of this song)
Solice! (In the words of this song)
Solice! (In the words of this song)
Solice! Solice!

There was a boy who ran away
From what he didn't know
Who he wouldn't say
He just
He had to go

    General CommentI listened to this song for the first time on a road trip with my friend to Detroit..... and whenever someone asked what we should do we would always say "You can do anything you want, as long as it makes sense" haha.

    We also met up with a guy named Dennis Johnson, so it was funny playing this song with him in the car.
