lyrics

“Pebble With a Cause”

I may be small but I’m still top-flighty
A little stoned but kind of a mighty
Sorry, but I got a job to do.

I’m a pain in the neck and a thorn in your side,
A tack in your tire when you try to ride.
I’m the pebble in your shoe.

It wasn’t a job I went and applied for.
It’s a natural fact I was cut and died for.
Leader of this ragged, jagged crew.

The pay’s pretty lousy. Most people curse me.
I play cat-and-mousey and get kind of thirsty,
Waiting here for you.

Chorus:
But if you look really closely, I think that you’ll find
I’m a speed bump-bump of a different kind.
Stop and say hello on your way through.
Acorn grows into a big, big tree.
I’ve got a hidden gem in me.
Stop and say hello on your way through.

Hale and hardy, tough and tiny,
Bold and bright and sharp and shiny.
Truth isn’t always pretty, but it’s true.
Now you and I have found each other.
A fleeting visit’s worth the bother
In my rough and tumble point of view.

Chorus

Please do.
