The Lyrics

an expedition on muleback down the trails of the grand canyon...
there's drama and trauma...whole lotta dread
though you've come for some relaxation
when the burros bound out, you get filled with doubt
and you're nervous from anticipation

stay against the wall
stay right against the wall
you don't wanna fall
stay right against the wall

don't ever look down...its far to the ground
much too far to wanna mention
and your donkey acts coy and you can't enjoy
till you're almost to your destination

well, he starts to bray
you don't know why he's crowin'
and you start to pray
you're achy and whine cause the trip won't end
goodbye, we mosey...and keep on our toesies
see ya...me and mule will go 'round windin' downward
see ya...me and mule will go 'round windin' downward

and its takin' all day...i slump and shake as i sway
so depressed, i can hardly speak
and this fanatical beast....gonna leave me deceased
if i fall, they'll recover me downcreek

can't go on this way
how i wish this mule was slowin'
and come what may
its no fun as i ride...i was gypped, my friend
outlook ain't rosy
i ain't feelin' cozy
see ya...me and mule will go 'round windin' downward
see ya...me and mule will go 'round windin' downward
see ya...me and mule will go 'round windin' downward

Fives for this quadruped ode, which requires a 4 in the security code.

As someone who has done some backpacking in the Grand Canyon, I don't appreciate the way that mules turn the trails into their personal restrooms; but I do appreciate the way that Alvin Rhodes turns Paul Simon's melancholy OS into a fun parody.
