The Lyrics

Rain was never destined for L.A.,
It drowned out the Northwest,
As we waited for a chance.
Between the lofty mountains and the sea,
The June gloom hanging o'er,
Just like dirty underpants.

McCambridge Park is boring in the dark -
All the fireworks have disappeared.
Someone left the doughnuts in the sun,
'Cause there's no one there to eat 'em,
But the raccoons and the 'possums -
And the city council's spoiling our fun - boo hoo, boo hoo!

I recall the raucous carnival,
Rumbling like a quake,
While the party poopers cowered.
June bugs, like hornets flying in my face -
And teen age boys playing bass drums 'till al all hours.

McCambridge Park is boring in the dark -
All the celebrants went somewhere else.
Someone left the ice cream in the sun -
But the experts say it's poisionous,
Like the fireworks are dangerous -
So there'll be a quiet afternoon of fun - whoopee, whoopee!

The party poopers say that we should see a movie -
It'll be such fun to sit and see some shows on TV!
I will drink the beer while it is warm -
And sit outside and watch the empty sky.
And sitting in the spa by myself,
And saying bad words to myself -
This Fourth of July.

I will take the past into my mind and I will live it -
I will be inspired by old gems and I will give it.
No matter what things that will occur,
And inspire all my naughty poetry -
I cannot keep it all to myself,
I can't leave it on the shelf.
I will share it with you -
This Fourth of July.

(Instrumental - Accordian Solo)

McCambridge Park is smelly in the dark -
Everybody stepping in ordure.
Someone let their dogs poo on the lawn.
I don't think that I can take it,
'Cause the summer sun will bake it -
And you better stay away 'till after dawn - pee yoo, peee yooo
Pepe Le Pew -
A skunk or two.......
