Stan Davis: Music

12 They Stole a Jeep

words & music by Stan Davis
LATE IN THE NIGHT WHEN EVERYBODY WAS SLEEPING
TWO SHADY CHARACTERS WERE SILENTLY CREEPING
THEY STOLE A JEEP AND WITH THAT JEEP
THEY WENT JEEPING AROUND IN THE TOWN

AND WHEN THE TOWN WAS DONE, THEY DROVE AWAY FROM IT
OUT TO THE CANYON HILL STRAIGHT UP THE SUMMIT
BUT LOST CONTROL AND THEN THE JEEP
CAME APLUMMETING DOWN
TO THE GROUND

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP
THEY STOLE A JEEP
AND SPED UP WHEN THEY OUGHT TO HAVE SLOWED
AND NOW THAT JEEP
IS IN A HEAP
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CANYON ROAD

THIS ACCIDENT COULD WELL HAVE TAUGHT THEM A LESSON
AS A DETERENT TO CONCURRENT TRANSGRESSIONS
THAT POINT IS MOOT BECAUSE THEIR SESSION’S
SUCCESSION WAS DEATH – SUCH A MESS

TO WIT WE’LL ADD A BIT OF WIT TO THIS DITTY
AND SAY THEY COULD HAVE USED A STEERING COMMITTEE
TO SET THEM STRAIGHT BUT IT’S TOO LATE
WHAT A PITY, TOO BAD
VERY SAD

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP
THEY STOLE A JEEP
AND SPED UP WHEN THEY OUGHT TO HAVE SLOWED
AND NOW THAT JEEP
IS IN A HEAP
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CANYON ROAD

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP
THEY STOLE A JEEP
AND SPED UP WHEN THEY OUGHT TO HAVE SLOWED
AND NOW THAT JEEP
IS IN A HEAP
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CANYON ROAD
IT’S AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CANYON ROAD
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CANYON ROAD!
