Calling All Cars--‘Evel Knievel Blues’

 

Verse:

Here I am, about to pinwheel to the ground

My high-pitched screaming the only sound

“Gotta rev up that crowd, gotta look cool,”

But it’s me about to splash down near Caesar's pool


 

Pre-Chorus:

I’ve a bird’s eye view of the crowd,

Up high in the sky, but soon headed down


 

Verse

“Keep ‘em entertained, at any any cost or price,”

But they’re not up here, bones soon packed in ice

As I’m rushed to the hospital, I hope you got your jollies

I’m the star attraction of the idiot air follies


 

Pre-Chorus:

“Look, it’s a bird, it’s a plane,” nope, just me

About to pay the price for all that gravity


 

Chorus:

What a bummer, man, got The Evel Knievel Blues

In my mangled body, soon be yet more screws

Yes, I’ve got The Evel Blues, enjoy the show

Headed for pavement splashdown, don’t you know?


 

Verse:

Cleared all but one of 140 feet, but now I fly though the air,

Soon to snap off something as I land hard down there

Frozen faces watch me pinwheel to my doom,

They’ll send get well cards to my hospital room

 

Repeat first Pre-Chorus:

Repeat Chorus:

END
