Red Mosquito

  • Watched from the window with a red mosquito...
    I was not allowed to leave the room...
    I saw the sun go down and now it's comin' up...
    Somewhere in the time between...
    I was bitten...must have been the devil...
    He was just payin' me...
    A little visit a reminding me of his presence...
    Lettin' me know...he's a waitin' for me...
    Red man's your neighbor call it behavior...
    While you're climbing up slippery hills...
    Two steps ahead of him, punctures in your neck...
    Hoverin' just above your bed... (2x)
    I was bitten...must have been the devil...
    He was just paying me...
    A little visit, reminding me of his presence...
    And lettin' me know...he's a-waitin'...he's a-waitin'...
    Up there...yeah...
    If I had known then what I now know... (4x) Writer/s: EDDIE VEDDER, JACK IRONS, JEFF AMENT, MIKE MCCREADY, STONE GOSSARD
