The Lyrics

Do you know how to keep Sam away?
Please go away so long
I may be wrong but do not stay
Do you know how to keep Sam away?
I’m searching hard to find
Some peace of mind from Sam today

Running through a great big freeway
Hear an echo eat them in a car?
Now eat them, now eat them, because here they are
Screams will hurt your ears, would crack a glass
And run so hard oh what to do?
I’m running and I’m low on gas

Can I even breathe with Sam? no way
I’m blasting off to space
Is there a place where I can stay?
I don’t bet who raised Sam comes this way?
Go everywhere to find
Some peace of mind from Sam today

Tried a rowboat Sam’s a magnet
I’ve been near and far away from home
Ride a bike take a hike, just leave me alone
Pikes are good to eat go fish today
But there you are with a goat friend
To sink my boat I swim away

Drip drip I’m all wet dry off some way
Do you know how to keep Sam away?

(Instrumental Bridge)

Aah, running through a great big freeway
Hear an echo eat them in a car?
Now eat them, now eat them, because here they are
Hope turns to tears, Sam stops at last
I run so hard oh what to do?
I’m running also out of gas

I’ve made my first fiend with Sam today
Oh, do you know how to keep Sam away
Mm, can’t wait to get rid of Sam today

Yes, I like Pina coladas, and a roll in the hay . . . I'm not much into East Coast, as I love SanJose! Great one, Ann!
