The Lyrics

A road trip song.
While in the merry month of August, started from Chicago, left the cats behind I'm really joyful hearted, and so is father dear,
Woke my darling' mother, packed up all her clothes, me happiness to smother then off to load the van,
Take my filthy pants
Made a tuna sandwich, just to cure my hunger
A brand new SUV, I sat back casually
I needed just to be on the rocky road to Washington, 1,2,3,4,5
Chorus: pack your bags, we're going
Down the rocky road
And all the way to Washington
Whack for all dee dah!
In Madison that night, we rested limbs so weary, started by daylight, next morning bright and early, went for breakfast at dawn,
to keep our stomachs steady, that's a traveler's start whenever he's on for feeding
we see the waitress smile, laughin' all the while
At my gothic style, it set my blood a flaming
she asked me was I higher than a Georgia pine
'Til I was almost tired of the rocky road to Washington, 1,2,3,4,5
(Repeat Chorus)
In Idaho next arrived, I thought it such a pity to be so soon deprived a view of that fine scenery so we took a stroll,
All among the Rockies, then our plates were stolen in that neat locality
Something crossed our minds,
When we looked behind
No license plates in sight above the bumper stickers
We found them on the road, bastards left a note
It said we're not in vogue on the rocky road to Washington, 1,2,3,4,5
(Repeat Chorus)
From there we went our way, our spirits never failing', parked along the curb, just as the sirens wailing, copper's engine roared,
faster than a speeding bullet down the road to catch a stolen Chevy,
I wanted to watch the pig,
Make the thief pay big
Excitement I do dig
The robber caught and cuffed
I'll bet you he has dope
The robber has no hope
I said, "Don't drop the soap"
On the rocky road to Washington, 1,2,3,4,5
(Repeat Chorus)
We got there to Spokane, when we safely landed, called ourselves a fool; we could no longer stand it, Blood began to boil,
temper I was losing, poor old eyes were tired, they began a-crackin'
"Thank God we're here," says I,
"I hate this", they replied
Said, "This really bites", they saw I was a-packing
With a loud hurray, they cheered "We're leaving away"
We quickly went our way from the rocky road to Washington, 1,2,3,4,5
(Repeat Chorus)
