Right of Way
by Robert Johnson Howard

Wake up, wash down, get yourself to school
Straighten up your act don’t be played like a fool
You got to make the grade or they’ll send you off to war
But I’ve been lied to a hundred times before

Cheer leader, knee socks, tight shirt, she rocks
Like I need a bimbo to tell me I’m not cool
Cold sweat, regret, I’m putting on the moves
But she don’t care about the golden rule

I’m gonna make a stand and demand my right of way. If that don’t work
You better get down and pray

The bully boy is coming, he’s gonna take my money
He don’t really hate me, just got to dominate me
Why you want to do what you do that you’re doing
What goes around comes around, flying back on you

Too old to be a boy, too young to be a man
Why is it fun just to see me come undone?
Does the tears on my face make the world a better place?
I should just turn and run but I’m thinking about a gun

Writing and recording is my passion. Its like a painting. It doesn't do any good stuck in my head so I might as well get it on disk before it drives me to cut my ear off.
