Lyrics

Screamin’ At The Sky

© Drew James 2001

 

Hey little waterbug swimmin’ all alone

Crawlin’ on the surface of a dirty yellow pond

Didn’t see it lurkin’ in the water down below

Till it grabbed him by his skinny leg and wouldn’t let ‘im go

 

Whoa, no place to hide

Whoa, goin’ for a ride

Whoa, he said goodbye

Whoa, screamin’ at the sky

 

Poor boy lived up on imaginary hill

Poundin’ and a-chasin’ everything that gave a thrill

Middle age came and it caught him unawares

Kicked him in the teeth and it threw him down the stairs

 

Whoa, no place to hide

Whoa, goin’ for a ride

Whoa, he said goodbye

Whoa, screamin’ at the sky

 

Papa woke up with the devil on his mind

Now he’s fast asleep with an angel in his eye

Goodbye papa with the slammin’ of the door

Mama used to hate him now she loves him evermore

 

Whoa, no place to hide

Whoa, goin’ for a ride

Whoa, he said goodbye

Whoa, screamin’ at the sky

 

Whoa, no place to hide

Whoa, goin’ for a ride

The slamming of the door

Now she loves him evermore

 

Screaming at the Sky
