BUG GUTS (A Summertime Anthem) © 2013 MJ Schlichting

Verse #1
DAYS ARE GETIN' LONGER, THE SUN IS HOT, THE WORST IS YET TO COME
THEY'RE MOVIN' IN, AND IT'S GONNA BE BAD, AND BOY, IT'S NEVER FUN
THEY DON'T CALL AHEAD, OR KNOCK ON THE DOOR, THEY JUST COME FLYIN' IN
LOOK AT MY TRUCK, I JUST CLEANED IT UP. IT'S A MESS FROM END TO END

Chorus:
BUG GUTS ON THE WINDSHIELD TELLS ME SUMMERTIME IS HERE
THEY GO SPLAT ON THE BUMPER OF MY PICKUP TRUCK AND MAKE A MESS ALL OVER MY MIRRORS
THEY BITE, THEY STING, THEY LEAVE A RASH, WISH I WASN'T HERE
BUG GUTS ON THE WINDSHIELD SEZ, THEY'RE BACK AGAIN FOR SURE

Verse #2
DRIVIN' TO TOWN WITH MY WINDOW DOWN AND A BEE COME FLYIN' IN
SWINGIN' AND SWATTIN' WITH MY BASEBALL HAT, I THOUGHT IT WAS THE END
DRIVIN' HARD FROM DITCH TO DITCH, IT MUST'VE BEEN A TERRIBLE SIGHT
THEM BUGS ARE OUT TO GET US ALL, I AIN'T GIVIN' UP THIS FIGHT

Chorus:
BUG GUTS ON THE WINDSHIELD TELLS ME SUMMERTIME IS HERE
THEY GO SPLAT ON THE BUMPER OF MY PICKUP TRUCK AND MAKE A MESS ALL OVER MY MIRRORS
THEY BITE, THEY STING, THEY LEAVE A RASH, WISH I WASN'T HERE
BUG GUTS ON THE WINDSHIELD SEZ, THEY'RE BACK AGAIN FOR SURE

BRIDGE
(SPOKEN): "NOW THIS MEANS WAR! ... I ALMOST WRECKED MY PICK-UP TRUCK ... IT IS US OR THEM!"

Verse #3
WELLLLLL, WE BATTLE ON ALL SUMMER LONG, I AIN'T TELLIN' YOU NO LIES
THEY'RE WATCHIN' EVERY LITTLE MOVE WE MAKE WITH THEM BEEDY LITTLE EYES
WE SWAT AND SPRAY AND KILL EM' DEAD, NEVER REALLY GET TOO FAR
BUT EVERY NIGHT, KID'S "HAVE A BLAST" CATCHIN' FIRE FLIES IN A JAR

Chorus:
BUG GUTS ON THE WINDSHIELD TELLS ME SUMMERTIME IS HERE
THEY GO SPLAT ON THE BUMPER OF MY PICKUP TRUCK AND MAKE A MESS ALL OVER MY MIRRORS
THEY BITE, THEY STING, THEY LEAVE A RASH, WISH I WASN'T HERE
BUG GUTS ON THE WINDSHIELD TELLS ME, SUMMERTIME IS HERE!

ADLIB CLOSE:
THEY BITE, THEY STING, THEY LEAVE A RASH, AND AS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD
BACK HOME WHERE I COME FROM, THE MOSQUITO'S OUR STATE BIRD
YA, WE BATTLE ON ALL SUMMER LONG, NEVER REALLY GET TOO FAR
BUT EVERY NIGHT, KID'S "HAVE A BLAST" CATCHIN' FIRE FLIES IN A JAR

Wow - made me smile - glad to hear the rag-piano come in - nice instrumentation and arrangement ... oh, nice bridge and key change ... foot tappin dancefloor stomping song.
