THEN THERE WAS THIS STRANGE FAST BIRD THE ROAD GONE LONG AND STRAIGHT
I HAD TO LEARN THE PASSWORD AND IT MUST HAVE BEEN MY FATE
I WAS BURNED IN THE BUSHES AND FROZEN IN THE SAND
IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THE WATER IN THE WORLD I WAS DYING A THIRSTY MAN

DON’T TAKE A SECOND LOOK DON’T BEND THE GOLDEN RULE

I HAD TO GO OUT WEST YOU KNOW WHERE THE TREES GROW WAY UP HIGH

DON’T TAKE A SECOND LOOK DON’T BEND THE GOLDEN RULE
