The road is fuckin' hard,
The road is fuckin' tough-ah,
There's no question that-eh
It is rough, rough stuff.
It's the fuckin' road my friend
But it's the only road I know.
When I'm munchin' on a tasty boosh
Right after the show.
You g-go go go!
The road is fuckin' hard,
It's also really fuckin' tough,
There's no question that-ah
It don't take no guff.
The road is a be-a-itch my friend
But it's the only fuckin' road I know,
When I'm snackin' on a tasty boosh
Right after the show.
You g-go go go!
I met a tasty baby in Michigan.
We screwed two times then I left.
Sometimes I think of my baby in Michigan.
Why can't I stay in one place
For more than two days.
Why?!
Because I'm talkin' about the road.
Because I'm talkin' about the road.
Because I'm talkin' about the road.
Because I'm talkin' about the road.
Because I'm talkin' about the road.
Because I'm talkin' about the road.
Road!

    Almost every band in history has recorded a song about how much it sucks to be on the road. This is like a parody of those songs.

    I was watching the moving picture box t-other day and Black said he always tried to put serious bits in his songs- I believe that is in the final five lines of this song- Rockers want the road it calls to them... it doesn't drag them away the moany barstewards!

    ....I love the D, but what the hell is a "boosh" ??- I always wonder that when I listen to this song. I know what I think he means, but I could be wrong??

    "Boosh" means "Bush" as in a woman's... You know. He means he's licking it, or if you want the most simple meaning, he's screwing a woman after a gig.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
