Giraffe

giraffe-wallpaper-1.jpg


LISTEN HERE!

Please believe me when I say
Itís a crazy crazy world out there
And Iíve got to get away
But There are dangers waiting
Behind every curve
Wild things are baiting me
just hoping that Iíll swerve

they say one for me and five for them
Iím just trying to survive and find a friend
People stare and animals just laugh
Itís the solitary life of the lonely giraffe

Hey mom I know sometimes Iíll get lost
But Iíve got mountains to walk along
And rivers to cross
Iíve got leaves to eat and
pretty girls to date
I try to love the whole wide world
But some are out to hate

they say one for me and five for them
the view up hereís so high itís hard to find a friend
People stare and animals just laugh
Itís the solitary life of the lonely giraffe

It can be cold some of the nights
I could be wrong
And you could be right
Iíll say my prayers and if itís ok
Iíll use what you taught me
To guide my way

Hey dad you know
Iíll be gone for a while
But thereís hyenas chasing me
And lions by the mile
There are hunters with guns
Trying to get me in their sites
I miss you guys so much
Iíll be home one of these nights

they say one for me and five for them
Iím just trying to survive and find a friend
People stare and animals just laugh
Itís the solitary life of the lonely giraffe
of the lonely giraffe

...and I thought I was just going to get on the net for some free porn.....but I decided to check out your website first.....great tune Steve....nice, beautiful, touching....love the "open mic" recording. I even love the hoarse vocals....you're never afraid to lay it out on the line. The one line...."they say one for me, five for them"....interesting, almost sounds like the music business......thanks for doing what you do.

But some are out to hate"

I agree -- the mountains and rivers line hit a weird spot. In a good way.

Did you know that humans have 7 cervical vertebrae? Same goes for giraffes. Giraffes cervical vertebrae are just bigger!
