She said "I got this hat in California
From a man on the street, his name was Joe
Have you ever been to California?
Well, you really gotta go"

She said "I knew a boy down in Miami
He was a welder, just like you
I love the ocean in Miami
I've never seen anything quite so blue"

[Chorus]
And I'd say
"Hey Where are we going today rocket girl
Tell me what life is like past that city limit sign
Dream your dreams in my ear
Baby just get me outta here
Fly me around this world
Rocket girl"

She said "have you ever been to Alberta?
Wheat fields as far as you could see
Have you ever seen the prairies?
Someday I'll take you there with me"

[Chorus]

I never tell her she's been busted
I know she's never been anywhere just like me
But it makes her feel like Cinderella
And I get to see the world for free (get to see the world for free)

I just say
"Hey Where are we going today rocket girl
Tell me what life is like past that city limit sign
Dream your dreams in my ear
Baby just get me outta here
Fly me around this world"

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
