Album: Blind Melon (1992)
  • His feet are dirty
    And his face, his face is long
    And while he's peeking out
    Through his hair he hides the pain
    Till that Lennon song comes along
    He'll turn it off and say can you drive?

    Jimmy, we need to borrow this for a minute
    'Cause we need to escape

    Now there's so many things that
    He's gonna do in 5 lifetimes
    Hell I could do 'em all
    Yeah and while he's rolling his own smokes
    He says to me he's buying a new ride today
    A classic deal the boss will give
    He said the same thing two weeks ago

    You've seen that sweaty jet rag
    Feeling come over him, and I've
    Seen that boy nod into a dream a time or two
    And on his way out his glazed stare
    Will make you stop and wonder
    Hey William is that the last time
    I'm gonna look at you?

    But the next day phone will ring
    And it will be him
    Can you drive?
    Jimmy, what would you say
    what would you do
    Oh should I pray?
    Or do you think that this blind mind
    Would listen to me, anywayWriter/s: Ric Ocasek
