"Self-pity" as written by and Cummings....
Sure like to boogie after death comes calling
Sure like rocking when I'm far away
"Oh Pooh Pah Doo" is letting Jesse watch the heavens
Paint another picture while you're turning gray
Everything I knew about was always American
Skip a stone lightly and you'll be okay
Never really get my rocking feet to moving

Till somebody's singing "Not Fade Away"
Got mystery train fever, and I'm a believer
And go down Moses, and I'll send you red roses
Despair, and death at an early age
You sang about trucking and the band had it moving

If you were a lizard then you might be gone
A little self-indulgence never moved a mountain
Don't need the fiddler yelling "Yeah, right on!"
You're my angel from a wet salvation
You can buy and sell me so you shine me on

Your mama worked hard and the acid made you think about it
Why, mother water, are the days all gone
Got mystery train fever, and I'm a believer
And go down Moses, and I'll send you red roses
Despair, and death at an early age
