Tunnel of Mud

By Millard 10.8.2003


I met a woman at the Franklin Wal-Mart who really boiled my water!
She was visiting from West Palm Beach with her Mother and daughter.
She was so poised I wanted to meet her and have a friendly little chat
Tanned with a perfect figure and she could see that I?m not that.

I spoke to her for just a little while and I liked her very much!
I wanted to see her again, -getting to know someone is real tough.
But she was at the check-out and I wanted to give her my card
In a flash she was in the parking lot getting into her car.

She sped off in her white Honda without a backward glance
I wanted to get to know her, not just get into her pants.
She drove away as my Spirits sank in a big emotional flood
I finally meet a woman I like, and it?s a ride in the Tunnel of Mud!

Two days later I was wishing I?d get a second chance
I wanted to get to know her, not just get into her pants.
If I?d see her it?d be Kismet, the start of a real romance
I fixed a leak on my old Porsche, got oil on my shirt n pants.

I drove over the mountain and stopped to get some gas
Pulled up to a pump at the station I?d gone to in the past.
There she was! The woman I wanted, and soon we were talking.
She was surprised to see me; -then she acted like I was stalking!

I invited her to join me for lunch with her mother and daughter
Her Mother screeched they had a meeting someplace over on the water.
They basically told me to piss off, like I was some annoying gnat
She looked me over disdainfully: like I was unkempt and fat.

She sped off in her white Honda without a backward glance
I wanted to get to know her, not just get into her pants.
She drove away as my Spirits sank in a big emotional flood
I finally meet a woman I like, and it?s a ride in the Tunnel of Mud!

If life was fair pretty women should meet a man they really like
And get told to PISS OFF! -Breaking their hard hearts with a spike.
Then like me their Spirits would sink in a big emotional flood
They?d find out what it?s like, on a ride in the Tunnel of Mud!

He?d speed off in a white Honda without a backward glance
If she wanted to know him, she?d hafta get into his pants.
He?d drive away as her Spirits sink in a big emotional flood
Then SHE?D say:

?I finally meet a man I like, and it?s a ride in the Tunnel of Mud!?
