The Lyrics

Johnny D challenged me to write a song using the word "petroglyph." So I did.
Hiking around, red rock bluffs
Seeking petroglyphs, pictures of
Sheep and corn stalks, people too
All I want is to get one quick view
I see cave walls every time I dream
I'm an Indian artifact fiend
I love that thing called history
They're all I want, my fantasy

Oh, look at that deer upon that high cliff wall
Oh, try not to fall!

Petroglyph - want to find you
Petroglyph - look behind you
Petroglyph - all I want is a petroglyph
But please don't touch them!

I'm stumbling around, the July heat
I keep tripping over my feet
See that cactus, in that rut?
I'm picking its thorns out of my butt
But they got some kinda hold on me
they're all wrapped up in mystery
Who put them there? I want to see
I love the ancient artistry

Oh, look at that deer upon that high cliff wall
Oh, try not to fall!

Petroglyphs -want to find you
Petroglyph - look behind you
Petroglyph - all I want is a petroglyph
But please don't touch them!

I'm with Phil! 5s! My favorite line...as is probably predictable, is "See that cactus, in that rut? Iím picking its thorns out of my butt."

Thank you Phil, Arwen, (that's my favorite too!) Johnny, lebiew, Kristof, and Cookie! Oh and Kristof, on your way to Wyoming, come to Utah and I'll show you some. And then I'll hit you on the head with a tack hammer because you are a ding dong.

Kristof isn't coming to Wyoming...is he? Did you just ruin a surprise, Ashkicksass??

K1chyd - LOL, thanks! And Arwen, I just figured it was inevitable considering the tributes and constant flirting...

I like parodies about stuff that's not very common...they can be pretty tough to do sometimes. Good job on this one.
Ashkicksass - July 14, 2004 - Report this comment
