The Greatest

Music and Lyrics – David Storey Socan 2012

Let’s head down to Main Street and huck a goober off the bridge
Try to catch your sister skinny dipping out at bare ball ridge.
We fire up some bottle rockets outside old man Thompson’s door

nd stick around just long enough to see his dentures hit the floor
Then we’ll steal Mrs Spencer’s bra strap right off her clothes line
We’ll use it as a sling shot to hurl apples at the sky

We are the greatest my buddy and me
We are the greatest the best you’ll ever see

I’ll take my old jack knife and slash a hole in our thumbs
Our blood will flow together as brothers we’ll be one
Then we’ll bury the skull and cross bones that you won at the fair
And I’ll take my silver dollar and throw it in there
Then when we’re 60 we’ll meet here once again
And dig them cause they’ll be worth a fortune by then

We are the greatest my buddy and me
We are the greatest the best you’ll ever see
Now news travels slowly the older you get

I heard the cancers got you and your counting the days left
But you’ve got your wife and your kids by your side
So remember our blood cause I’m thinking bout you tonight

We are the greatest my buddy and me
We are the greatest the best you’ll ever see
