Crunched up rocks and snow capped peaks. Peace from the valley.


Put your mind into it, guess again- get it tight!
you can fall into it backwards-- yes you can;
Well I never said I'd be quiet
so don't look at me and play with your hair
send a message to your local magician
if you dig what he wears- Tigerstripe Flares

Runnin' towards the bowling alley
I must have missed your call
my cowboy boots have holes in 'em now
my slide guitar's on the wall
my favorite song's on the radio
and I just bought a big TV
got two friends stayin' at my house right now
and a job interview next week

Put your head back to it
I got your ass covered,
you can run it in a circle if you like-
would you mind, do you mind?
That's just PERFECT!

I never said I wasn't always extra-friendly
come with me downstairs
check the method of your favorite musician-
you can tell that he cares
in his Tigerstripe Flares.

Drop me off at my powerboat-
I just received her call
my short sleeve shirt's got palm-trees on it
and I stole it from the Northgate Mall!
My favorite song is stuck in my head
and I just bought a vegan ice-cream
Got two friends here in the back of this cab
and it feels like a limousine!
Tigerstripe Fares.......Tiger!
