Long Haul

I land at McCarran, hail a cabbie named Darren / that’s not his real name but it rhymes

viva Las Vegas, but wait,something’s wrong / I’ve seen Hoover Dam now three times

long haul, long haul / just wanna get to my hotel

I should be gambling, but Darren keeps rambling / on about some movie that he saw

he’s rambling, I’m snoozing, when I wake up / we’re in Beaver, Utah

long haul, long haul / just wanna get to my hotel

Darren says his ex-wife Jezebel / rode off with some biker, Mojave Michelle

there goes a camel / what the hell?

we run out of gas on Donner Pass / the meter is still going

I reach for my cell, better order some pizzas / meanwhile the blizzard keeps blowing

long haul, long haul / just wanna get to my hotel

Bigfoot’s knocking, Darren rolls down his window / Bigfoot chuckles “well,well, well…

hey Darren, tell him no anchovies on it this time, dude.”
