Lyrics

KISS THE GROUND KIND OF DAY
by EBENLO

Ten o'clock and all is well but I'm weepin'
Good enough, I'm sure I'll laugh and swell when I'm sleepin'
It's been a year how much can ya' stand
Kickin' sand in a foreign land

Lazy nights, crazy days in the field yeah
I can't wait to get back to the 'States, nice to see ya'
I'm flyin' home in a couple of weeks
The plane touches down and all I'll think
It's gonna be
A KISS THE GROUND KIND OF DAY Yeah!

It's been four years with Uncle Sam now it's questions
No more job don't you need a resume for the next one
With your final pay what will ya' do
Buy a big fat keg and a three piece suit
It's gonna be
A KISS THE GROUND KIND OF DAY Yeah!

STORYTELLER:
You know I know how it feels to be out there in the wild wild middle of nowhere
Where things like Big Macs, cherry pie, and five regulars for five dollars are a long lost and well remembered figment of your imagination
You wanna' know what I missed the most while I was out there was my folks, Arby's Sauce, and Pizza and not necessarily in that order
I tell ya what I don't miss now that I'm back is suckin' on that rubber mask for eight or more hours at a time in the heat of a summer's day
We used to say people back home've got no idea what we're going through and really who wants to tell them?
Well, you know what, maybe now they do
I think that every last one of us out here would like to thank you guys for your sacrifice
We are all all praying for you guys to make it on back here safe and sound
Until that time comes you touch down on the tarmack and plant your own KISSer right here in this GROUND

Here I am in my homeland and it's bliss
I just found out about them Cali girls with a kiss
America land of the free true home of the brave friend to you and me
It's gonna be

A KISS THE GROUND KIND OF DAY Yeah!
A KISS THE GROUND KIND OF DAY Yeah!
