The Lyrics

So I'm on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, trying to enjoy the final day of "official summer," and I see a bunch of birds fighting over a slice of bread. That inspired this:
(instrumental opening)

I keep on trippin', trippin', trippin'
on down the boardwalk.

I keep on trippin', trippin', trippin'
on down the boardwalk.

And I see pigeon and seagull
by the sea.
Pigeon and seagull
and they're entertaining me.
I see some pigeon and seagull
all-for-free.
Looks like avian revolution.

Feed the birdies.
They're pecking at what they eat.
See the children.
Giggling in their seat.
Lots of people
thinking it can't be beat.
Watch birds fight for their consumption.

And I see pigeon and seagull
fight for bread.
Pigeon and seagull
each one gone out of its head.
I see some pigeon and seagull
what I said.
They're gonna get some indigestion.

(instrumental break)

I see them peckin', peckin', peckin'
there on the boardwalk.
I see them peckin', peckin', peckin'
there on the boardwalk.

And I see pigeon beat seagull.
That's the word.
Pigeon beat seagull
city versus suburb bird.
I see the pigeon beat seagull
now you've heard.
Bread-fight has a resolution!

Birds keep on flyin', flyin', flyin'
around the boardwalk.
Birds keep on flyin', flyin', flyin'
around the boardwalk.

(instrumental close)
And when I leave this little episode, and reach Caesar's Atlantic City, guess which rock legend is performing at that casino that night? None other than Steve Miller himself. You cannot make this stuff up. Didn't have the time or the money to see his show, though. (Sorry, Arwen. If I'd known, I would've saved up and taken you.)
