It seems like a million years
Since I picked out a good stone...
Lost a shoe in the mud,
looking for a flat craft that skip
To the far bank, and ripple
Water like rock fish at first light.
Good stones are hard to find in town -
Good for busting windows, breaking into shops
Cracking heads, or throwing at cops...
Good stones are hard to find,
And I found mine.
