lyrics

THE BALLAD OF BOB’S GARAGE
Fold up your mattress, time to hit the road
We’re on a trip to outer space, welcome aboard
Bring on the medics save the sympathy
This star ship sails, sharp at midnight across the galaxy
Go tell the preachers we’ve all had the call
We’ve seen the light, we’ve fought the fight we’ve been ten feet tall
God bless this vessel and all that sail in her
She runs on love from heaven above and ancient Chinese herbs
Here’s to the captain for luxury
He knows his stuff from dawn to dust a man of history
Throw down the ladder our leaders have arrived
They have no food, they have no clothes I think they need a ride
We don’t need no oil, don’t want your gas
Oh we can fly across the sky on alcohol and grass
We don’t need no oil, no don’t want your gas
We can fly across the sky on alcohol and grass
Batten down the hatches lock up all the doors
The revolution is revving up, drivers to your cars
Roll up the flag boys oh the revolution’s here
We’re taking back what god gave us, sex and drugs and beer
Hold on to your heads the captain yelled
This is a one way trip my friends, landing can be hell
Oh when we left the planet it was all a blaze
The government had taxed the sun, the place went up in flames
Where the heck we headed? The crazy blond she cried
I paid my dues, I sacrificed, I want my paradise
Forget your money, leave your purse behind
There are no walls and shopping malls, you can’t buy peace of mind
Roll up the flag boys the revolution’s here
We’re taking back what god gave us, sex and drugs and beer
He is a woman, she is a man
She is a woman, he is a man
Roll up the flag boys the revolution’s here
We’re taking back what god gave us, sex and drugs and beer
Roll up the flag boys the revolution’s here
We’re taking back what god gave us, sex and drugs and beer
