Subject: Lyr Add: WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? (Rogers)
Thanks fer reminding me of this one... I haven't played it in a while, but have felt like I should!

;-)

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
Garnet Rogers
Off the CD "Summer Lightning"

What's wrong with this picture? There's something not right
My eyes feel like marbles man My teeth are too tight
What's wrong with my mirror That's not the boy that we love
My mouth tastes like the inside of a truck-driver's glove
What's wrong with this picture?

What's wrong with this picture? Who put grey in my beard
How did that happen, my god I look weird
Is that my real waist line are those really my thighs
Who shrunk these jeans down to half of their size
What's wrong with this picture?

How did I get here, my god I look bad
I went to bed a young man now I look like somebody's dad
Where did the years go Where is my hair?
The way that the time flies it just isn't fair
What's wrong with this picture?

What's wrong with this picture? Think I'll go back to bed
I'll spend the day with the covers pulled up over my head
'cause ya can't fight the reaper man, he's quick and he's mean
I feel just like the Porche that belonged to James Dean
What's wrong with this picture

Where did my life go? I had so much planned
Who took my hourglass? I lost all my sand
How did this happen? Man give me a break
I thought I was hitting my stride I got left at the gate
What's wrong with this picture?

It's done in a great, kinda angry blues rock thing... really cool!
