One I’ve had for awhile and recorded in various formats, but this is a freshly produced version. It has become generally known as “… that south end song”.

Sunshine through my window, Saturday
Eyes open, the morning won’t delay
Whole long summer of summertime to play (hey, hey)
Cap’n Crunch cruisin’ the bay
Mighty Mouse coming to save the day
September’s a million years away

Grown up with a South End pedigree
Novas and Gremlins as far as I can see
Summer jams with some Jack and a little weed
Cruisin’ the Dixie at night
Leisure suits, Sunday school make it alright
16 years old with a full money back guarantee

Fast forward some 40 years or so
Fed up with this goddamn dog and pony show
The devil you don’t or the one you might think you know (you know)?
Barely maintaining the bar
It is what it is and they are what they are, just a
means to an end that’ll only get you so far

Life’s moments now glimpses flash by at a glance
Blink an eye and it’s all done and gone by so fast
Dwelling deep in the past
Does it all ever come ‘round to make sense at last?

First light of the morning, time to go
Loaded up the old Chevy, got the boys in tow
Quick stop for some gas and a little dough (let’s go)
Barking in rhythm and rhyme
Waggin’ tails steady in ¾ time.

Outbound on the highway, windows down
Sun smiles on the morning as we’re blowin’ town
Like living a dream
‘Cept the dream never was what you thought it would be
