I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE

I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE

Eight weeks of mending time

Mother Mary's here with me

Outside the dawn is yawning

Decorated by a palm tree

 

Iggy pop is in my head

Braking silent living room

I feel like going underground

While they're playing way up high

 

BUT I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE

In my decked out wheel chair

I’d be up there shine or rain

With my stiletto walking cane.   how I wish!!

 

Worry now cause mighty dollar

Takes away our civility

Worry now cause mighty dollar

Makes the world go tippy toe

 

What about Sick America, noise ostinato in my head!

What about Weak America, noise ostinato in my head!

If You can get a view from my hospital room

It”s a party up on the rooftop and I’m not dead!!!!!

 

Drag Racing in valley of pain

We have to fulfill our dreams

But they have a way to scream

Like peacocks against blue sky

 

Meds keep me laying down

And that's why I'm looking up

I have a dream of getting better

Mixing human with alien matter

 

I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE

In my decked out wheel chair

I’d be at that party shine or rain

With my stiletto walking cane   how I wish!!
