The Lyrics

Woe comes the dawning, the sin of despair
I'm persuing
I fear existence as I'm flyin' my kite
And snafu-ing

I know today I'll make do while fate is unkind
Cause I know what's going in and what I'll find

All they're givin' me are rocks
All they're givin' me are darned old rocks
All they're givin' me are rocks
All they're givin' me are darned old rocks
All they're givin' me are rocks

A sheet with circles cut out for my eyes
There's too many
Heard a Great Pumpkin comes through for worthy guys
If there's any

I know today I'll see through the Halloween lies
As they go on throwing in what I despise

All they're givin' me are rocks
All they're givin' me are darned old rocks
All they're givin' me are rocks
All they're givin' me are darned old rocks
All they're givin' me are rocks, wha oh

[guitar solo]

(Giving)
I can't stand it, mother (giving), oh oh
(Giving)
Woo, uh huh

I've found today is just two of yesterday's one
Will I go and miss the ball, or will I run

All they're givin' me are rocks (givin')
All they're givin' me are darned old rocks
All they're givin' me are rocks (givin')
All they're givin' me are darned old rocks
All they're givin' me are rocks

That was what Naomi Campbell said when she was given some uncut diamonds.
