The Loomers

Hit The Ground Running

from REELING DOWN A ROAD

Johnny called Monday to complain about something

His mother or his brother or his guitar wasn’t strumming

Oh the weatherman is saying that he thinks it’s gonna rain

And every single dollar ends up going down the drain

Johnny called Monday to complain about something

Oh yeah… all right…

He shoulda hit the ground running

Suzy told me Tuesday that her boyfriend was a loser

The went out to the movies and he wound up in a cruiser

Well the camel’s back is broken and the check is in the mail

It’s never gonna work out if he’s sleeping in the jail

Suzy told me Tuesday that her boyfriend was a loser

She shoulda hit the ground running

SOLO

Friday night I thought I might be losing my marbles

I thought that I was thinking by my thoughts were all garbled

Well the kids were screaming crazy, they were banging on my head

I couldn’t move another inch, I had to crawl to bed

Friday night I thought I might be losing my marbles

I shoulda hit the ground running
