Little Cream Soda

Album: Icky Thump (2007)
  • Well, every highway that I go down
    Seems to be longer than the last one I knew about, oh well
    And every girl that I walk around
    Seems to be more of an illusion than the last one I found, oh well
    And this old man in front of me
    Wearin' canes and ruby rings is like a tanging explosion when he sings
    With every chance to set himself on fire
    He just ends up doing the same thing

    Well, each beautiful thing I come across
    Tells me to stop moving and shake this riddle off, oh well
    And there was a time when all I wanted
    Was my ice cream colder and a little cream soda, oh well, oh well
    And a wooden box in an alley full of rocks
    Was all I had to care about, oh well, oh well, oh well

    Now my mind is filled with rubber tires, and forest fires
    And whether I'm a liar, and lots of other situations where I don't know what to do
    At which time God screams to me "There's nothing left for me to tell you."
    Nothing left for me to tell you
    Nothing left
    Oh well, oh well, oh well
    Oh well
    Oh well, oh well, oh well
    Oh well Writer/s: JACK WHITE
