When You Figure It Out, Explain It To Me by Ron Porter ©2013

put me on a roller coaster
prop me up in a popup tosater
cook me up in a turkey roaster
I am just alone for the ride

set me adrift in an oarless boat
lock me in a castle behind a moat
take me to the circus so i can vote
I don't have anything to hide

leave me stranded in deep snow
take me where the wild things grow
abandon me where the cold winds blow
I will still find where it's warm inside

You can take a chance
You can steal my pants
But I'll keep my car-keys and my pride
So stop being so got-damned snide!
