Good, Good, Golly, Gosh, Darn

I want to be part of the jigsaw puzzle
But my pieces are upside down
I wish thing were just a little more standard
Like a wheel, you know...round
We'd still have outdoor plumbing, if they left well enough alone
Temperatures are rising, like the mortgage on my home
And they say, "Hold on, it'll never hit the fan" and I say, "Go on"

You're sure to see the sunshine again
Just as soon as the earth can spin
You'll spot that point of light in the sky
Through the ozone, the new day will begin
It's somewhat familiar, but it's still unique
Like riding a bicycle and not hogging the whole street
And they say "Hold on, share the road there" and I say "Come on"

You're the boy who cried wolf
You can huff and you can puff
You can dress up like a sheep
And I don't give a...
Good, Good, Golly, Gosh, Darn

--Solo Verse Break--

Would any heart believe in this magic
Could any soul learn the whole truth
Should everyman be more pragmatic
Must politics be so uncouth
If the water keeps coming, we may never get out
Then someone damns the river and claims there is a drought
And they say "Hold on, there's a flash-flood warning and I say "Come on"

---Repeat Chorus---
