lyrics

GENGHIS

Genghis Khan in his pick up truck
And his rabbit bludgeoning club
Hunts for beaches in San Antone
So lonely is he for love
He suffered major victory
And he's empty all inside
He'd profit from a little tenderness
And that knowledge hurts his pride

Whoa, whoa, where art thou Romeo?
Whoa, whoa, where art thou Romeo?

Genghis snarls he's a hungry man
He wants a burger with fries
Come the girl to take his order
He's lost the moves a man might try
Headlights stab into darkness
Genghis floors it leaving town
He rides his rod like a bronco
Keeping that heavy hammer down

Whoa, whoa, where art thou Romeo?
Whoa, whoa, where art thou Romeo?

Genghis parks in lover's lane
On the hill high above the town
Breeze fingering thru his hair
Just like that girl he never found
He helps himself to another beer
Heaps curses on his luck
How's a man to command respect
Without a woman in his truck?

Whoa, whoa, where art thou Romeo?
Whoa, whoa, where art thou Romeo?
Thy Juliet's gone underground
Sorrow knitted ‘cross her brow

Here I sit in protest
My face turned to the wall
Anger is my only crutch
And so I slip and fall
Into that sad swamp-like fog
That shrouds the word “because”
You cannot see what's not to be
Because, because, because
Because there is no one truth to love
Because there is no one truth to love
No one truth to love because
