Funky Bob (an Autobiography)

Funky Bob got a job
Joined a funky band
Dug the sound toured around
Speeding in his homeland
Any time any place
Anywhere to play
Got a gig we can dig
Even if it's no pay

And time ...
He always knew it was on his side
And life
Was catching a wave that was such an easy ride

East or west what is best?
Didn't matter where
He would know where to go
He'd just say I don't care
Thicker skin sink or swim
Didn't care at all
He'd stay alive and survive
The current with a phone call

The years
Solemnly swore they would keep their vows
They made in the garage of a summer drummer's house


Now time had passed from the last
Time he hit the stage
Looked around slowing down
Time to turn a new page
For a new wage
Don't be sad
It isn't bad
So he broke his vows
Take a pen start again
It doesn't matter nohow

And time
He still believes it is on his side
In life
He knows there is always another wave to ride
