Poi Dog Pondering – The Ancient Egyptians lyrics
--- ------- ---------
(A Love Letter to Jonathan Richman)
Well the Ancient Egyptians, and the other Africans
The Mayans, the Incas, and all the Polynesians.
All around the world, a long long time ago,
People would walk, where ever they had to go.
They didn't have car keys, and they didn't have roads --
They didn't have those ugly convenience stores, or Texacos
In fact, all around the world, a long long time ago,
People would walk, where ever they had to go.
Well now it's the 1990's, and the gasoline does flow,
But I still try and walk most of the places I have to go
But sometimes my friends will stop and say,
"Hey Frank! There's a bus or a cab over there...
Why don't we go ahead and get in it? "
But I say no, no, no, and didn't you know,
You get to know things better when they go by slow.
