The Lyrics

I'm sure there are simpler ways to learn that immediately to the left of the International Date Line is always one day ahead of the date to the right - but why take the easy route?

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
It could have been some twenty miles cleared
When it turned to something different
I was panting over large hills
Wasn't longing for some pavement

I had gone long but in the back of my eye
I saw boars f*ck but not the sign I then ran by

Missed the trail marker, ran for some time
Then wobbled, hurled and fell into a strip mine
Rolled down an elk latrine - and then a ravine
Hobbled on - but there were more detours to come

I had a black out from blue rear
Then fought blisters and gators
And when the night fell I lost steer
Was down to slower than waiters

I had gone long and when the morning came by
Was out of luck and fell into a stream near-by

Missed the trail marker, fell, swam and climbed
Got freaky lost on the way to the goal line
I longed for caffeine - and I was moss green
Limping on - but with a numb face to fall on

Missed the trail marker, but made up time
Because I ended on left of the date line
I'll take a calendar when next out I'll roam
Hitching on - I finally got a ride home

Missed the trail marker...
