Like Kerouac

© 2012 J. Oscar Bittinger

This little town
I’ve got to blow, man
Wanna know what’s down the road
Comes a time
You’ve let go and
Gotta take your shot
Drop your nickel in the slot

Call me Jack! Like Kerouac
Forget the map
Let’s just drive
Windows down
Music loud
Ain’t it good just to be alive
We’re alive (3x)
Ain’t it good just to be alive

I ordered porter
You got a whiskey
The band was swinging
Like a crazy parade
Here’s to the mad ones
That burn like Roman Candles
Feelin’ the lust of love…
…and revolution being made

Call me Jack! Like Kerouac
Forget the map
Let’s just drive
Windows down
Music loud
Ain’t it good just to be alive
We’re alive (3x)
Ain’t it good just to be alive
When your wonder
Turns to hunger
Starts eating you up inside
With desire
Kiss me deep
No time to sleep
We’re gotta burn, burn, burn
Like the clock’s on fire!Grab this a sad old world
In a mad embrace
Belly to belly
Face to face
Call me Jack! Like Kerouac
Forget the map
Let’s just drive
Windows down
Music loud
Ain’t it good just to be alive
We’re alive (3x)
Ain’t it good just to be alive
