Lyrics

Cannonball
Words and Music: Mark David Manders

I slipped in the shower and hit my head
Fell down to my knees and I bled
It turned my whole damn shower pan red
Before I blacked out
When I came to, the water was cold
My hands were wrinkled but low and behold
I had a vision from deep within my soul
Or somewhere thereabouts
And I saw it all coming down
Just like a cannonball landing in a fishbowl
Broke the glass and everything
I saw lions laying down with the lambs
A rabbi eating barbecued ham
And the Beatles even got back together again
For one final show
It was helter skelter served sunny-side up
It was below the waist and off the cuff
And just when I thought I’d had enough
I lost control…again
Chorus
There were ninety nuns all dressed in black
Speaking in tongues and talking smack
And the Pope was seen somewhere out back
Playing Choctaw bingo
The moon took a shine to a bottle of rum
As the Beatles played their final song
And every single star sang along
Including Ringo
Chorus
There were questions before me, answers behind
And the reasons formed a single-file line
As we marched straight into spring cleaning time
In my head
Then a know-it-all question got into a spat
With a nagging question, now I can’t relax
Because that question just keeps coming back
How come you left me when you did?
